ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


Forensic DNA fingerprinting has become a universally accepted crime-fighting tool. Recent advances use the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify human DNA obtained from crime scenes. This experiment, based on a crime scene scenario, has an inquiry-based component.

• Learn about DNA fingerprinting while solving a crime!
• Introduce the biotechnologies of restriction enzyme digestion, PCR, and electrophoresis
• Perform agarose gel electrophoresis to separate differently-sized DNA molecules
• Load, run, and analyze Ready-to-Load™ PCR reactions obtained from suspects and the crime scene.
