Sordaria Genetics Class BioKit® (with voucher)

(in stock)


Intermediate—Easy to perform; requires some basic training in microbiology.
For a class of 30. Students cross the wild-type Sordaria strain with the mutant tan strain. Hybrid asci are produced containing 4 dark- and 4 light-colored ascospores. Students then use tetrad analysis to calculate the gene to centromere distance in map units for the mutant tan gene. The exercise requires about 10 to 14 days from setup of cross plates to completion.

Note: Keep fungi cultures at room temperature; do not incubate or refrigerate. This kit includes a voucher to request perishable materials later at your convenience. Contact us or return the voucher to request delivery of perishable materials.
