Biochemical Evidence for Evolution Lab Activity
Educational Classroom Kits and Activities
Look at Evolution through the Study of Homology
- Investigate evolutionary relationships with a modified Nuttall precipitation technique
- Analyse similarities and differences between a variety of simulated animal blood sera
- Materials included for ten lab setups
The study of evolution using homology consists of a classification method based on analysis of antigen-antibody complexes found in the blood. Using a modified Nuttall precipitation technique, students will identify the source of each sample. For safety, this activity uses five different simulated animal blood sera instead of the real thing. The Biochemical Evidence for Evolution Lab comes with enough materials for ten setups, a teacher’s guide, and student copymaster.
