While this is not a flashy site, the activity suggested is excellent. Users of
this activity make a paper cutout of a circular plasmid, and insert a paper
cutout of the human insulin gene. User must choose the appropriate restricion
enzyme from a provided list. I have used this activity in a sophomore cell and
molecular biology class as well as for high school teacher training classes.
The questions that are raised by this activity are excellent. It is a good
activity to consider prior to using restriction enzymes in a laboratory setting.
