Ward's® DNA Fingerprinting Electrophoresis Lab Activity

Explore basic elements of forensic science.

  • Includes key materials to perform gel electrophoresis
  • Applications to forensics and genetic testing
  • Time Required: 120 minutes
DNA fingerprinting can be used to identify the perpetrator of a crime, determine familial relationships, track hereditary diseases passed down in families, find a close match for an organ transplant, and more. With this electrophoresis system, students can perform the same type of gel separation used in these analyses in approximately two hours; students are given DNA samples from a “crime scene” to electrophorese and discover who perpetrated the crime by analyzing their unique genetic patterns or fingerprints.
