Explore genetics with our “out of this world” experiment! In this lesson, we explore how DNA technology can be used to explore the relationship between genotype and phenotype using one of two exciting scenarios (medical diagnostics or alien genetics).
Fluorescent dyes simulate DNA fragments, eliminating post-electrophoresis staining and saving you valuable classroom time!
Kit includes: instructions, ready to load dye samples, agarose powder, practice gel loading solution, electrophoresis buffer, DNA stain and fine tipped transfer pipettes.
All you need: electrophoresis equipment, micropipettes and long wave UV lamp.
Time required: 45 minutes
For 10 lab groups.
