Product Description
In this lab, students are get to observe how gel electrophoresis works without needing all those expensive materials.
Students read a short passage on a murder mystery, then are asked to "cut" the DNA strand and separate the sequences based on their size to simulate gel electrophoresis. Once students have completed the chart they can solve the murder!
Lab includes a few analysis questions.

Great practice activity before completing the NYS Relationships in Biodiversity Lab.
