Handling of cell cultures& Analysis of DNA damage using Alkaline Comet assay workshop

Date: 2-4 April 2019

Venue: Makmal Bioserasi, CRIM, UKM, Bangi




Genetic toxicology is a branch of toxicology that assesses the effects of chemical and physical agents on the hereditary material (DNA) and on the genetic processes of living cells. Beyond playing a key role in chemical hazard identification, genotoxicity testing can also provide information on the mechanism of action, which is pivotal in the characterization of carcinogenic risk, supporting the use of non-threshold models for the estimation of low dose effects. The frequently used assay to evaluate genotoxicity of test substances is Alkaline Comet Assay which also known as single cell gel electrophoresis. Therefore, Makmal Bioserasi, UKM and in collaboration with Malaysian Society of Toxicology take this opportunity to organize the workshop with the main purpose to provide a better understanding on the analysis of DNA damaging agent by using Alkaline Comet Assay.



This 3-day workshop emphasizes extensively on the theory and practical of cell culture and the analysis of DNA damaging agent by using Alkaline Comet Assay.

Registration fees:
