This DNA fingerprinting kit allows students to carry out their own criminal investigation by comparing DNA samples collected from suspects to DNA collected at a pseudo-crime scene.
- Introduces DNA fingerprinting technique
- Teaches DNA fragmentation by specific enzymes
- Introduction to agarose electrophoresis
Students will use specialised molecules to cut the DNA into fragments, which can then be visualised by a process known as electrophoresis. The resulting pattern, or fingerprint, can be compared and the guilty suspect identified.
Informace o dodávce: Supplied with components needed for hands-on experimentation for six groups of 4 - 5 students or 24 - 30 students with teacher’s guide and separate student’s guides.
