Use the Science of Opioid Dependence Kit to teach your students complex genetics in the context of opioid dependence. Students will design a human genetic research study to investigate a genetic component of one’s susceptibility to opioid dependence. Then they will analyze the genotypes of participant DNA samples by gel electrophoresis and use statistical methods to make claims.
Features and Benefits
- Engages students in a real-world public health issue
- Includes pre-amplified PCR samples to study the technique without a thermal cycler
- Contains reagents and consumables for 8 lab stations (32 students)

UView 6x Loading Dye and Stain
UView 6x Loading Dye and Stain is a dual-action fluorescent nucleic acid stain and loading dye that allows for immediate visualization of DNA fragments after electrophoresis without in-gel or post electrophoretic staining/destaining. It is sensitive as well as nontoxic and nonmutagenic, making it an attractive alternative to ethidium bromide. Visit the UView 6x Loading Dye and Stain product page for more information.
