Which human DNA sequences are used in crime scene investigations, and why? In this workshop you assume the role of crime scene investigator. You will learn which human DNA sequences are used by forensic scientists and how trace amounts of DNA can be used to identify a person. You will learn to use the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and gel electrophoresis to identify which of a number of suspects can be exonerated based on DNA evidence. This hands-on workshop teaches the basics of polymerase chain reaction (PCR), gel electrophoresis, and the statistics of chance associated with modern DNA fingerprinting. Learn key background and how to prep the lab. Do exactly what your students will do.
