Analyze Real DNA Data
Engage students in real-life exploration and discussion around the Human Genome Project with this hands-on kit. Using actual data representing important genes from automated DNA sequencers, students will determine the DNA sequence, compare and extrapolate database information, and identify the gene product and other closely related proteins. Kit include automated sequencing printouts and detailed instructions. Internet access is required. Materials provided for 10 groups. Time requirements: 45 minutes.
