Ward's® Restriction Enzyme Digestion of DNA Lab Activity

This kit explores the effect restriction enzymes have on DNA.

  • Activities: Enzymatically Cleaving DNA and Analyzing on a Gel
  • Students Research Restriction Enzymes
  • Materials for Eight Lab Groups
  • Estimated Lab Time: 120 minutes
  • Teacher's and Student's Guide Included
Restriction enzymes, one of the primary tools in molecular biology, cut DNA molecules into precise fragments of a predictable size. Students can see the results by digesting lambda DNA with restriction enzymes Pvu II and EcoR I, running a gel, and then determining the base pair size of each fragment.

The kit includes a teacher’s guide, a student copymaster, and enough materials to run eight gels.
