Inquiry Investigations Learning About Forensics and DNA Lab

By: Inquiry Investigations Item#: 1278490
Print this informationPrint
Your students will become forensic scientists as they apply the latest innovations in DNA technology to a scenario-based DNA murder mystery. They ll compare the electrophoretic results of DNA samples from a "crime scene" with those from various suspects. Using a simplified DNA fingerprinting procedure, they ll then solve the crime based upon the fragment patterns revealed on the gel. In the process, they ll learn the basic concepts of DNA fingerprinting as well as insight into why this revolutionary process is so accurate. They ll also get a "hands-on" education on DNA structure and extraction, gel electrophoresis and autoradiography. This activity brings the "real-world" applications of biotechnology to life and will simulate discussion on the ethical considerations associated with the use of cutting-edge technology.. Each Inquiry Investigations kit includes: Materials for ten groups of four students. Investigation literature, teachers guide, and student copymasters. Teacher Resource CD-ROM, containing experimental results, teaching tips, subject content, assessment, glossary, and standards correlations. System Requirements: Windows: 2000 or XP; Vista compatible. Mac OS 9.2 or higher (including OS X). 128 MB RAM. Network/site license available. This item is a non-discountable School Specialty Science exclusive.
