Polymerase Chain Reaction

In the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) simulation you will be thrown right into a crime scene where a murder has taken place. To investigate the crime scene your first task is to collect blood samples in the hope that the murderer has left traces of their DNA …

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to…

• Explain the function of DNA polymerase in DNA replication and synthesis

• Perform a PCR experiment using DNA from a blood sample as the template

• Carry out a gel electrophoresis that separates DNA according to its size

• Interpret the unique signature of the human genome and the use of tandem repeated regions (TRR) in DNA profiling

Techniques In Lab: Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) | Gel electrophoresis | DNA profiling
