A complete line of inquiry-based DNA analysis kits and curricula designed to help teachers introduce students to the exciting world of molecular biology. These DNA kits for education utilize hands-on techniques to explore DNA structure and function, cell structure, restriction digestion, and agarose gel electrophoresis.
Introduce the skills required for agarose gel electrophoresis through an exercise with real-world relevance to the foods you eat. This kit uses food dyes to illustrate how visible molecules move through a molecular sieve.
Build a horizontal gel electrophoresis chamber and integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to showcase how these disciplines are combined to develop tools to solve problems.
This activity aids teachers in providing in-depth explanations of how restriction enzymes cut DNA and how electrophoresis can be used to separate and visualize DNA fragments.
This DNA analysis kit demonstrates the procedures and principles of DNA restriction digestion. Digestion of phage lambda DNA is followed by agarose gel electrophoresis. Students get hands-on experience with gel casting, sample loading, DNA staining, and graphical analysis.
Using real DNA as evidence, your students play the role of crime scene investigator to figure out for themselves, "Who done it?" This DNA kit for education illustrates the principles behind testing methods used by practicing forensic biologists.
In this activity, your students employ the same real-world laboratory procedure used to extract DNA from many different organisms for a variety of biotechnology research applications. This DNA kit allows students to extract genomic DNA from their own cheek cells, then precipitate and bottle it in a necklace amulet – a cool keepsake!
