An Interactive DNA Investigation
- Investigate your own DNA
- Compare your class results to the world's
- Time required: ~75 min plus 2 hours for PCR
Working with primers for a 300 base pair Alu insertion in chromosome 16 (PV92) students will determine their own unique genotype in this hands-on investigation. Then, compare class results over the Internet with others around the world.
Kit includes: instructions, proteinase K, PCR EdvoBeads™, control DNA and primers, microtubes, agarose, DNA ladder, practice gel loading solution, gel loading dye, buffer, InstaStain® Ethidium Bromide and FlashBlue™ stain.
Required, but not included: micropipettes to measure between 5 and 50 µl, tips, water bath, thermal cycler, electrophoresis apparatus, power supply, microwave or hot plate, UV transilluminator.
