Sixth Form DNA Workshop at Techniquest
Lower Sixth Biology students attended a half day workshop in the laboratories at Techniquest on DNA. They had to extract their own DNA from cheek cells (not painful at all!). These samples were then subjected to amplification on a PCR machine and analysed by the students using electrophoresis.
This was an immensely informative experience for our students and offered an opportunity to work in a professional laboratory.
