Bio-Rad Genes in a Bottle™ Kit
Can I see your DNA? The first step in many research applications is isolating the DNA sample. Introduce your students to molecular biology with their own DNA. In this hands-on workshop you will extract the DNA from your own cheek cells and watch it precipitate from solution as floating white strands. You will then collect and transfer the DNA strands to create a fashionable necklace. This simple procedure is used to extract DNA from many different organisms for a variety of real research applications. Bring only your imagination and take home your own DNA - in a necklace. This is another Bio-Rad lab your students will never forget! Learn key background and how to prep the lab. Do exactly what your students will do.
