Advanced—For experienced high school and college classes; requires some technical skill.
The molecular biology kit uses 2 bacterial cell types and 2 color-generating plasmids to teach DNA expression, inheritance, and sterile technique. The lab extends beyond classic transformation technique because it is put in context with the engineering concept of "chassis selection" when choosing the best host cell. Results are easy to analyze because the colors are visible to the naked eye.

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

  • Introduce bio-engineering concepts
  • Teach synthetic biology and microbiology techniques
  • Allow students to experience real-world connections

  • The molecular biology kit uses 2 bacterial cell types and 2 color-generating plasmids to teach DNA expression, inheritance, and sterile technique. The lab extends beyond classic transformation technique because it is put in context with the engineering concept of "chassis selection" when choosing the best host cell. Results are easy to analyze because the colors are visible to the naked eye, and students can observe how their structural framework alters the colors they see. Includes enough materials for 24 students working in groups of 4. Note: Order the kit with the perishable materials included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishables later at your convenience. Contact us or return the coupon to request delivery of perishable materials. Use perishable materials within 1 week of receipt.

       This item is sold and shipped to schools and businesses only. Not available to individuals or residential addresses. For substitution suggestions, please call us at 800.334.5551 (8am to 8pm, ET, Monday-Friday).

 
 
 
 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transformation & Biodesign in One Like all of the BioBuilder materials, the Colorful World transformation kit and explanation of the biodesign involved are excellent. Unlike most transformation kits, this one allows students to use two different plasmids, and two different cell types. The purpose of the two different cell types is to examine their effects on manufacturing the trait, which in biodesign is called analyzing the "chassis" for your transformation. You will see, for example, that one strain makes a bright green pigment, and the other makes a lighter green pigment, even though the "green" plasmid used is the same. Further, Carolina does a great job packaging the materials and pouring the plates for you, making this as easy as possible to set up, which is huge for me as a teacher. The BioBuilder Foundation is also wonderful about communicating, in the event that you have any questions. Good luck and enjoy!!
