About this Event

Lab Skills Learned:
Pipetting
Centrifuge
Gel Electrophoresis
PCR Thermocycler

Learn DNA sequencing, how PCR works and we will have students send their samples for analysis to UTSW. probably will be two classes as will need to review the results later, we are going to amplify two parts of the mtDNA named HV1 and HV2. You will also learn how to search for your DNA sequencing on BLAST and to find information regarding the results.
This will be at least a two part class, in part1 we will extract DNA from our cheeks, purify it, amplify it with PCR, purify and wash the product and then send to UTSW for sequencing.
In the second class we will review the results. Second class may just be me emailing you the results.
