Places availables

Instituto IMDEA Agua

In this activity people will be able to see the all the necessary material and the process from the isolation of a microorganism from the environment, such as water and soil, to how we can study if this microorganism is resistant to different antibiotics. People will be able to see techniques based on the cultivation and growth of microorganisms as well as new techniques, based on molecular biology, for detection and identification of the microorganisms, such as PCR. It is not necessary to make a previous reservation. Go directly to the IMDEA Agua building on the day of the activity.
