Advanced--For experienced high school and college classes; requires some technical skill. Looking to build on your students’ classroom knowledge of DNA fingerprinting with a hands-on activity? This kit takes your forensics class to the next level by giving students the opportunity to analyze DNA samples from a (fictitious) crime scene. As students immerse themselves in attempting to identify the culprit, they learn more about DNA profiling and the role of tandem repeats in the analysis. They build on that knowledge by conducting a hands-on investigation of the samples using PCR amplification and gel electrophoresis to help close the case. This kit is a great next step for bringing molecular techniques into your forensics classroom or an ideal investigation for engaging your biology classroom in a new way. Kit contains materials for 28 PCR reactions with students working in 6 groups of 4. Kit also includes perishable materials.
