- Interactive modeling
- Covers PCR, restriction enzymes and Sanger sequencing
Help your students achieve a better understanding of multiple biotechnology concepts including diagnostics, forensics and bacterial transformation with a single hands-on modeling kit!
Using the color-coded foam nucleotides in the Biotechnology Kit© and teacher-developed activities, students:
Model polymerase chain reaction and how flanking primers result in the exponential amplification of a short product.
Model the Sanger DNA sequencing method using chain-terminating fluorescent dideoxy nucleotide analogs.
Model DNA cloning using restriction endonucleases to cut DNA at specific sequences.
