Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and Gel Electrophoresis Lab

The HURI SURI project is developing a regional biotechnology workforce pipeline by expanding and supporting biotechnology research experiences for Jamestown Community College (JCC) undergraduates and disseminating these research experiences and materials to area high school teachers and students. This lab teaches students to "use PCR to amplify a plasmid form of DNA called pCDNA3.1(+)/GFP Plasmid DNA" and "run the DNA products formed during PCR on an agarose gel." The materials and procedure for this lab are described in detail.
