In this activity, students use the model microbe Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 to perform deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) extractions, polymerase chain reactions (PCR), and gel electrophoresis. The activity is designed in inquiry format to allow students to observe and experience the Archaeon and extreme halophile (salt-loving) microorganism, Halobacterium sp. NRC-1, along with a stable mutant derivative, Halobacterium sp. NRC-1.

A unique kit using a colorful model microbe to help students understand the connection between genotypes and phenotypes

  • Robust yet simple protocol designed with the classroom in mind
  • Connects students to real-world bioinformatics
  • Includes a unique model organism ideal for classroom study
Advanced-For experienced high school and college classes; requires some technical skill.

A Carolina Exclusive! Looking for a great way to introduce your students to a new model organism while building their inquiry skills and advanced molecular techniques? In this activity, students use the model microbe Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 to perform deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) extractions, polymerase chain reactions (PCR), and gel electrophoresis. The activity is designed in inquiry format to allow students to observe and experience the Archaeon and extreme halophile (salt-loving) microorganism, Halobacterium sp. NRC-1, along with a stable mutant derivative, Halobacterium sp. NRC-1. Students identify the phenotypic differences between these colonies and use PCR to analyze DNA from either a mutant (KBT-1), a wild type (NRC-1), or a sectored colony, further cementing the genotype-phenotype connection. Each kit contains materials for 25 DNA extractions and PCR reactions.

 
 
 
 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This kit has great features I have used this kit for two years with my AP Biology classes. It does a nice job of demonstrating the link between genotype and phenotype, gives my students the opportunity to investigate biotechnology concepts and a bioinformatics application. For the cost, it addresses several of the types of investigations expected by the College Board. I would definitely recommend it.
