Learn how to set up a PCR reaction by preparing four tubes for an experiment, including a positive and negative control. Explore the steps of adding dNTPs, primers, samples and enzymes to each tube, and set the thermocycler to the correct settings. Analyse the results by running samples on an agarose gel and interpreting the outcome.
“Before attending the labs, students are encouraged to use the bioscience or chemistry materials to understand the practicals better. This makes the students more confident when attending the labs.”
