Students learn about different types of genetic mutations, including substitutions, deletions and point mutations and about various techniques used to detect genetic mutations.
The kit contains all the reagents to screen simulated clinical samples for a mutant gene, using both the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and restriction digestion mapping.
Students conduct a simple clinical diagnostic experiment in order to identify a diseased patient.
- Understand detection and analysis of genetic mutations.
- Carry out a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to amplify DNA source.
- Screen amplified DNA using restriction mapping with restriction enzymes.
