Student Experimental Protocol

Student teams will first use the miniPCR system to amplify DNA samples collected at a fictitious crime scene and then separate DNA fragments using the Bluegel electrophoresis device. Each team will complete a set of worksheets given out during tutoring that cover the important theories and experiment steps required. Students will practice using a micropipettor to load a gel prior to working with their PCR samples.
