This technically simple experiment simulates the use of DNA in forensic investigations. Students cast agarose gels, load predigested DNA, and perform electrophoresis. They use the banding patterns of the DNA in the gel to compare the DNA fingerprints of 2 suspects with evidence and victim DNA. The Classroom Kit contains instructions, 5 sets of apparatus, a How-To DVD, and sufficient supplies for 10 experiments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great educational and fun project! The electrophoresis and forensics kit was a great way to help the kids through the DNA project. It was fun and educational. The students had a great time getting to do things for themselves and were especially excited when it came to checking their gel to see "who did it!" It was also very easy to use, but make sure you watch the Pat video.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This lab has a definite "hook" for students. We used 5 9-volt batteries, ran the gel for 55min, and got excellent results. On end-of-unit surveys, students often remark that this was their favorite lab because they felt that they were "doing stuff real scientists do". Students are always engaged in this lab and love to compare to see which group got the best results.
