Description

Whodunnit? Who is the daddy? Because DNA is a unique genetic signature, it can be used as evidence to help rule out individuals when many are involved. 

First, students develop pipetting skills with a 2-part, hands-on activity: dialing a pipette to a volume that corresponds to the amount identified on the pipette practice card, and then practicing loading into a soft agar disk with wells to simulate loading into an agarose gel. 

The next step is doing electrophoresis with DNA samples and performing an analysis of the resulting DNA patterns. What better way to do this than using DNA from 5 samples to identify which male whale is likely little Luna’s dad? 

DNA evidence is also key in solving crimes. In this mystery students use DNA evidence along with other exemplars to figure out who is the likely suspect in the death of Dr. Ward. 

The single user reagent sets are pre-aliquoted for an individual workstation making it easy for you to open the pack and start your electrophoresis with even less prep, and include one bag of 2 – 200 µL micropipette tips. These activities require a MiniOne Electrophoresis System with p20 pipette (not included).
