Molecular biology:

  • Experience on  DNA and RNA extraction from different tissues, cDNA synthesis, cloning, probe making methodologies (cRNA) as well as PCR.                     
  • Experience on gene quantification using Real Time qPCR and genes distribution using In Situ Hybridisation (ISH) methodology, DAB and fluorescence Immunohistochemistry.         
  • Laser micro dissection: advanced tool to isolate and capture of specific cells for gene expression.
  • DNA analysis by micro-satellite mapping techniques.                                           
  • Measurement of  circulating hormone level using  ELISAs.
