Practice sample

Students prepare their own samples according to the following instructions:

Students define the goal of sample analysis to conduct appropriate collection and extraction of total DNA. Students can refer to the purposes of analysis to prepare the appropriate number of samples according to the following suggestions:

Case 1: Descriptive analysis (describing intestinal microbiota, soil, water...). using 01 sample of total DNA extracted from fecal samples, soil and water as the object of analysis. Total DNA should be extracted according to a procedure appropriate to the type of sample. Trainees record the extraction kit information used.

Case 2: Analysis, evaluation, comparison (for example, assessing the impact of a certain environmental factor on the gut microbiota, soil, water...). Students should use at least 2 samples of total DNA extracted from related samples. For example, if a trainee wants to check the change of soil microbiota after fertilizing, the trainee should collect soil samples collected before fertilizing and 1 collected after fertilizing.

The sample brought to the course is a total DNA sample (be sure to have bacterial DNA). After collecting the sample, students check the quality of the sample and fill in the information HERE
