DNA Barcode Amplification Kit (with Prepaid Coupon)

Item # 211385 Exclusive



In stock and available to ship.

  • Use DNA barcodes to identify student-collected samples of plants or animals
  • Enjoy robust and simple protocol designed with the classroom in mind
  • Connect students to real-world bioinformatics
  • Identify diversity by taking taxonomy to the next level
This kit explores an emerging trend in molecular biology and brings bioinformatics to the classroom in an accessible manner. Students take a new approach to taxonomy using "DNA barcodes"—short, unique DNA sequences—to learn about the biodiversity of plants, mammals, fish, or insects. Using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on specific regions of the rbcL or COI gene, students amplify their extracted DNA to create unique barcodes. These amplified sequences (amplicons) are then submitted for sequencing and can be analyzed using online tools. Our partner, GENEWIZ, Inc., offers an educational discount for sequencing services. Each kit contains materials for 25 DNA extractions and PCR reactions.
