The objective of this lesson is for students to gain hands-on experience of the principles and practice of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). At the completion of this activity, students should understand the process by which PCR amplifies DNA.
In this lesson, students will explore the structure and function of DNA. First, students will explore the structure of DNA by building a model. Next, they will explore DNA’s physical characteristics by isolating it from cheek cells. These lessons
