Green Gene Colony Transformation 4- and 8-Station Kit Perishables Refill

$28.05

Product: (in stock)

Description

An eye-catching example of the genetic basis of inheritance

  • Green color is clearly visible in normal classroom light
  • No UV lighting needed
  • Pre-aliquoted and prepared reagents minimize teacher prep time
  • Designed to match traditional AP® Biology Lab 6. Open your students' eyes to the genetic basis of inheritance with this simple lab. Developed in cooperation with the DNA Learning Center, this kit clearly demonstrates the induced uptake of a jellyfish gene by E. coli. Students observe the phenotypic effect of adding the gene for GFP (green fluorescent protein). GFP is expressed on plain LB—no color development substrate or induction reagent is needed. Your students can easily view the "green" effects in normal classroom lighting. Colonies will fluoresce under UV light. The plasmid containing the GFP gene also contains an ampicillin resistance gene, so ampicillin can be used to select for transformants. Lab procedure is easy to follow. The 4- and 8-Station Kit Perishables Refill replaces consumed items from the 4- and 8-Station Kits.
