ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


Teach your students about restriction enzyme digests in the context of forensic science! Your students will cut DNA with restriction enzymes and then compare the banding pattern of the crime scene DNA versus that of two suspects using agarose gel electrophoresis.

• Explore DNA and restriction enzymes through the lens of forensic science
• Learn the biology, techniques, and applications of DNA fingerprinting
• Digest DNA from two suspects using the enzymes EcoRI and HindIII
• Separate and size DNA samples using gel electrophoresis
• Compare suspect and crime scene samples to determine ‘whodunnit’
