Molecular Biology Technician

These technicians must have experiences in general molecular biology techniques including DNA/RNA extraction, modification, PCR, high throughput automation of RNA and DNA, transformation, clone selection and propagation. Another example is to know about various recombinant protein expression vectors into bacterial or yeast expression systems. Additional experience in tissue culture, insect cell expression system, and purification will be a bonus. Soft skill includes strong attention to details and excellent communication skills.

Education & Training: 

Due to the wide knowledge a molecular biology technician must have, technicians should have at least a two year degree applied degree in biotechnology or 4-year degree in Biology or related program.
