In the picture, Summer Intern Javier Ríos Valencia, from Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, conducting experiments in July 2016 to clone genetic sequences of Chikungunya virus into plasmid DNA. After amplification of DNA using techniques of polymerase chain reaction (PCR), DNA is separated by electrophoresis and purified from agarose gels, by visualising and cutting the bands containing DNA. The material is used for subsequent ligation into another destination plasmid that will be used for protein expression.
