Welcome Molecular Biologists!
In Biology we have (or will) use several molecular biology tools to cut, copy, and analyze DNA. Today I would like you to complete a virtual lab where you will culture an unknown bacteria species, copy its DNA using a polymerase chain reaction, read the DNA using gel electrophoresis, and then use a searchable database to identify the microbe.
Follow the link below to the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and complete the Bacterial Identification Lab. http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive/vlabs/bacterial_id/index.html
While you complete the lab answer these questions.
In order to get the answers to me – save the doc with a new name (last name, first initial) and re-share it with me. I will be checking my email throughout the day. If you have questions please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
