Polytene chromosomes are giant chromosomes common to many dipteran flies. These chromosomes are usually found in larvae. Students did a microdissection of Drosophila and a chromosomal squash; stain used was orcein.

Ed Kim is our second FC Biotech Spotlight for November 2018!

While earning his horticulture degree, Ed discovered the practical ties that biotechnology has with the agricultural industry. He has held several internships at Irvine’s vertical farms where he’s grown microgreens and tested fertilizer conditions for optimal growth. One day, Ed hopes to breed new plants that are more resistant to drought and harsh soil conditions! 🎆🎉Congrats, Ed!🎉🎆

Our FC Biotech Spolight for November 2018 is Evan Bonnand!

Evan Bonnand is an alumnus of Fullerton College and has taken the FC Biotech course path. He now works as a chemical researcher for ALS Global Services! He accidentally registered for the BIOL 190 course thinking it was a generic "Intro to Biology" course, and he says it was a happy accident, as he soon developed a passion for biotech. 🎆🎉Congratulations, Evan!🎉🎆

This is Albert Esparza, he is taking tissue culture at Fullerton college. He is adding trypsine to his MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cell so they can lift of the plate and he can count them to produce a growth curve, (pic1) 
In the second picture Albert just extracted his own DNA from his cheek ! The blue part inside the test tube is his DNA colored with methylene blue.

Biotech 190 and Outreach events use Microplate Art to introduce students to micropipetting, an essential skill to have. The students use a p200 to micropipet different colored dyes into the indicated well on their protocols and obtain a percentage error at the end.
