Exploring Electrophoresis of DNA Demonstration Kit

Intermediate—Easy to perform; requires some background knowledge.

Students separate mixtures of precut DNA fragments using samples of lambda DNA - uncut, cut with EcoRI, and cut with HindIII - to effectively demonstrate the action of restriction enzymes and the principles of electrophoresis. Gels can be run in 3-1/2 hours using three 9-V batteries or overnight with 1 battery.

Can also be adapted for use with activities in the National Council for Agricultural Education's Biotechnology for Plants, Animals, and the Environment (item # 212217).
