The educational DNA extraction and Gel Electrophoresis kit has been designed specifically for middle-school and high-school pupils. It is an easy - fun DNA extraction experiment for all grade levels and meets many of the National Science Education Standards for life science content. The educational kit aims to introduce the basic concepts of molecular biology and genetics in a way that introduces students to the fascinating world of DNA. Using a technique similar to the one used by scientists in Molecular Biology - Biotechnology and Genetics labs - students can extract DNA from fruits or vegetables and then perform a Gel Electrophoresis experiment to examine the DNA fragments. The experiment is easy to perform and requires little or no prior knowledge of complex Genetics and Biotechnology lab procedures. Advantages of using this kit are: Students can carry out a comprehensive DNA extraction experiment similar to the ones done in Genetics labs; The abstract concept of DNA is transformed into something concrete; Easy to use and safe enough to be used by very young pupils; Interesting - fun and informative; Simple and rapid protocols; No need for complicated and expensive lab equipment; No need for harmful or dangerous chemicals and reagents.
