Students become crime scene investigators as they conduct real-world forensic DNA
analyses. Using PCR and agarose gel electrophoresis, they analyze the provided DNA samples
— from a hypothetical crime scene and suspects — to learn how DNA profiling can distinguish
one person from another. This powerful tool assists in investigations of crime scenes, missing
persons, mass disasters, immigration disputes, and even paternity testing.
Use the real-time PCR version of this kit (1662660EDU) as a starting point to become familiar
with qPCR techniques using premade DNA samples and activities that examine factors that
impact sensitivity and accuracy.
Kit includes crime scene and suspect samples, PCR master mix, primers, allele ladder,
test tubes, curriculum, and more for 32 students. See website for cost-saving bundles with
