Polymerase Chain Reaction: Amplification of Alu PV92 Insert

Polymerase Chain Reaction: Amplification of Alu PV92 Insert

From the University of California, Davis, Partnership for Plant Genomics Education, this biotechnology laboratory is an eight-day activity in which students take samples of their own DNA from the lining of their mouths and use "a powerful molecular biology technique, Polymerase Chain Reaction, to amplify this Alu region so that it can be visualized using gel electrophoresis." The activity contains readings, background information, objectives, materials, instructor and preparation notes, student questions, and procedural guides to help illustrate "the process of PCR and its importance in modern day biology."
