Students work with an interactive DNA-model to learn about DNA structure.  They will find out about the typical working methods in a genetic laboratory and carry out two experiments:

  • isolating genomic DNA from the mucous membrane of the mouth and
  • making the isolated DNA visible by agarose gel electrophoresis.

Take a look at the lesson/education scenario DNA - Our Genome for ideas to use in the classroom

Attention Teachers - if you plan to use the lesson/education scenario please give us your feedback afterwards!  Save this link to complete the short evaluation form.  Thank You.
