Colony Transformation 8-Station Kit (with voucher)

$121.95
(in stock)

Description

  • No liquid culturing
  • Minimal teacher preparation
Designed to match traditional AP® Biology Lab 6. This kit demonstrates the induced uptake and expression of foreign DNA by a living cell. Students observe the phenotypic effect of adding new DNA sequences to living bacteria. E. coli cells that take up an antibiotic-resistance gene gain the ability to grow in the presence of ampicillin. Requires preparation 2 days prior to lab.

The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for 8 teams of students. Includes voucher to request perishable materials later at your convenience.

AP® is a trademark registered and/or owned by the College Board, which was not involved in the production of, and does not endorse, this product.
