ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


Scientists can directly manipulate an organism's genome to produce a phenotype using engineered genes called transgenes. In this experiment, students will use fluorescent microscopy and PCR to analyze C. elegans (nematodes) that have been engineered to express the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP).

*Kit contains LIVE materials. Please request materials 2 weeks prior to lab*
