Biotechnology 101 Kit
Meat quality is a serious issue in the food industry. How sure are you that your burger or supermarket lasagne is really made of beef and not other types of meat? Identify different types of meat samples by studying mitochondrial DNA.
For some people, lactose intolerance is related to genetics. This project explores the genetic variation of the gene MCM6, which controls the expression of the lactase enzyme.
Humans influence plant genetics by farming, selective breeding, and now through genetic modification. Explore this scientific technique, and discuss the societal and political landscape surrounding it.
Embark on experimenting with real-world protocols and teach techniques used in cutting-edge research, from GMO detection to human genotyping, and from biodiversity to blood typing.
Make better progress with visual instructions
See every step 👀
Master essential techniques
Work your way through core molecular biology lab techniques including DNA extraction, PCR, electrophoresis, and troubleshoot as you go.
Empower your students to get hands-on with biotechnology every step from start to finish, as they set-up, visualise and document DNA experiments.
“We do a lot of work on DNA technology, which is really interesting, really exciting and very current, but the pupils don’t ever get a real hands-on experience with it.”Danielle Fountain, Head of Science
