Human Alu DNA Extraction and Amplification Kit with 0.2-mL Tubes (with voucher)

$211.35
(in stock)

Description

Advanced—For experienced high school and college classes; requires some technical skill.

  • Simple, robust protocol is ideal for classroom use
  • Incorporates Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and chi-square analysis
  • Helps demonstrate real-world applications of PCR
  • Discover how Alu insertions are used to track world population migrations
  • CD-ROM contains animations and video clips for classroom instruction

Students use safe saline mouthwash or hair and Chelex® extraction to obtain a sample of their own DNA. Then they use polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify a 300-nucleotide Alu insertion into an intron of the H-cadherin gene. Gel electrophoresis separates the 2 alleles, and each student determines his/her own genotype. The experiment provides an introduction to human population genetics as participants learn to score genotypes and calculate genotype and allele frequencies.

Kit contains instructions, a CD-ROM, and materials for 25 students to perform DNA extraction and amplification. Kit does not include materials for electrophoresis. Note: Kit includes a voucher to request perishable materials later at your convenience. Contact us or return the voucher to request delivery of perishable materials.
