Addresses AP® Biology Big Idea 3 and Essential Knowledge 3.A.1, 3.A.3, and 3.C.1. Students learn how to perform gel electrophoresis. Once the technique is mastered, they use their skills to perform a simulated genetic analysis. Materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.
Use gel electrophoresis to conduct restriction enzyme analysis in your classroom with a new, inquiry-based twist.
Students learn how to perform gel electrophoresis as they begin to understand the roles of restriction enzymes, genetic inheritance, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in this key genetic engineering process. Following their initial experimentation, students dive deeper into the activity by working to optimize the technique and completing a simulated genetic screen. The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.

With the current AP® Biology curriculum, you are no longer limited to 12 prescribed labs in your classroom—meaning you can now teach the course using labs that fit your classroom and student interests.
Carolina is proud to be the only supplier with unique kits and activities that are exclusively designed for the new AP® curriculum. Our Carolina Investigations® series is specifically aligned to the Big Ideas and Science Practices and was built from the ground up with the help of expert AP® teachers.
Focused on making inquiry easier in your classroom, Carolina Investigations® kits feature activities that allow students to take a guided approach to inquiry while building their Science Practices and connecting the Big Ideas. These kits offer an initial skill-building activity that features a more traditional classroom approach. This is followed by a secondary investigation using a unique experimental design template to help guide those student-driven, inquiry-based learning opportunities.
