In this workshop, students get to experience what it would be like to work in a forensics lab by investigating a fictional crime scene scenario. They will evaluate the crime scene and suspect DNA samples using modern molecular biological techniques including restriction digests and gel electrophoresis. They will compare the bands formed on the gels to identify the criminal.
This workshop is a great introduction to genetics and forensics analysis. Students will learn how scientists would approach a crime scene situation and how to pour and load gels, a process that many students do not have practical exposure to before attending university.
This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds only. Please note this workshop will include a 30 minute unsupervised lunch break. Students should bring their own lunch and a drink.
