CEBIB Labs

The Center for Biotechnology and Bioinformatics (CEBIB) in collaboration with Chemoquip Limited(Kenya) and HiMedia Laboratories(India) organized a 1-day hands-on workshop on the use of HiPer® DNA Extraction Teaching Kits (Column based) and HiPer® PCR Teaching Kit. The event which was held on February 11, 2019, at CEBIB attracted 30 participants, both faculty staff and postgraduate students. Each of the participants was engaged in the practical use of the kits in the extraction of genomic DNA (gDNA) from a bacterial culture, amplification of the extracted gDNA using gradient PCR, resolution of the extracted DNA/PCR products using agarose gel electrophoresis and visualization of the gDNA fragments in a gel doc.

Four (4) Centre of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics (CEBIB) graduate students namely, Temitope Arinola, Easter Syombua, Abneel Kaur, and Accadius Lunayo participated in this year’s 7th Annual Biosafety Pre-conferences courses held from the 14th to 15th August 2018 at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.

The Pre-Conference Training courses focused on Biosafety at the Graduate level so that the young upcoming scientists would be able to take part, and learn about the importance of Biosafety Regulations in regard to the introduction of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in the Kenya. The training included:

  • Food and feed safety assessment of GMOs
  • Emerging technologies for gene manipulation and CRISPR training
  • Role of Bioinformatics in risk assessment of GMOs
  • Regulatory Compliance from Laboratory to Confined Field Trials- Biological and Physical Containment, Genetic and Material Confinement
  • Post- Commercialization Monitoring and Biotechnology and Biotechnology Product Stewardship
  • Biotechnology and Biosafety Communication.

purification of insect haemolymph proteins. The isolated, proteins were characterized
and their properties investigated.

In this project the main aim and objective was to isolate,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
characterize and study properties of haemolymph proteins of the tsetse fly. The other
objective was to find a unique protein that could be targeted by specific insecticides. The
techniques for isolation, purification and characterization were basically similar to those
employed in the project described in part (i). (The project was funded by Deans
Committee, TWAS and IFS Grants).
