In DNA fingerprinting, variable number tandem repeats (VNTR) are used to identify individuals. In this kit, students will type themselves at the D1S80 locus on chromosome 1. This region contains between 14 and 40 copies of a 16 base pair repeat.
Kit includes: instructions, proteinase K, PCR EdvoBeads™, control DNA and primers, microtubes, agarose, DNA ladder, practice gel loading solution, gel loading dye, buffer, FlashBlue™ stain, InstaStain® Ethidium Bromide.
All you need: micropipets to measure between 5 and 50 µl, tips, waterbath, thermal cycler, electrophoresis apparatus, power supply, microwave or hot plate, UV transilluminator.
