ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


This experiment introduces students to the use of DNA fingerprinting in a simulated paternity determination. A child's DNA fingerprint is compared with his parents. The experiment does not contain human DNA.

• Learn genetics and molecular biology techniques by solving a hypothetical paternity case
• Introduce students to restriction enzymes, PCR, and electrophoresis
• Perform agarose gel electrophoresis to separate differently-sized DNA molecules
• Load, run, analyze, and size pre-digested PCR samples to determine the biological parents of a child
