Cyber DNA Extraction and Gel Electrophoresis
Students will practice DNA extraction and gel electrophoresis by performing a virtual version of these experiments on the University of Utah genetics teaching website. These labs will allow the students to work through a virtual gel electrophoresis and DNA extraction in order to prepare them to perform a real electrophoresis and DNA extraction in future labs.
1. Identify the important aspects of DNA extraction
2. Identify the important aspects of gel electrophoresis
