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.

Demonstration Kit includes materials for 2 demonstrations; Classroom Kit includes enough materials for 5 groups of students to perform the lab activity twice. Both kits come with free 1-year access to digital resources that support 3-dimensional instruction for NGSS.

Note: Order bulk DNA 2 weeks prior to desired ship date.
