College holds biotech workshop
A handful of area high school students hailing from Northern Vance High School and the J.F. Webb School of Health and Life Sciences recently participated in Vance-Granville Community College’s second biotech workshop.
The students worked in the state-of-the-art biotech laboratory on the college’s Vance County campus, where they produced and purified a green fluorescent protein.
The workshop was conducted by Dr. Danny Monroe, the bioprocess technology program head at the college.
It was the first in a series of workshops on offer this year by the college’s arts and sciences division. Other workshops include a creative writing workshop in April, a science camp for middle school students in June and a drama camp in June for students in grades 7-12.
