An "unknown" DNA sample was collected at a crime scene. The students are given three different DNA samples representing suspects and are asked to identify the criminal. After completing the experiment, students will not only find out the answer, but also understand restriction digests or PCR, gel electrophoresis, and genetic concepts associated with this experiment.

Each kit is good for 24 students with 6 reactions worth of material for each of the samples (The Criminal sample and Suspects A, B and C) and 24 reactions of a 2X Master Mix.

  • Mock Crime Scene: Scenario designed to provide a fun and interesting learning experience for students.

  • Multiple DNA Plasmids: Plasmid DNA is used to emulate the genetic diversity seen in humans. Four samples are included with the kit, one representing DNA left behind by a criminal and three suspect samples to compare against the criminal sample.

  • Simple and easy to set up: The protocol is easy to understand and follow. Kit components are ready made and fast to set up, reducing preparation time for instructors.

  • Multiple applications for learning: Teaches important concepts in genetic diversity and its applications in the real world while introducing students to restriction digests and gel electrophoresis, important tools used in biological research, medical studies and forensics.
