Product Details

A murder has occurred, and DNA samples from various suspects have been collected. Challenge your class to solve the mystery using simulated DNA fingerprinting techniques.

  • The basics of DNA fingerprinting
  • DNA structure and extraction
  • Gel electrophoresis and autoradiography

All materials are reusable.
