ABSTRACT:

This lesson explains several important examples of self-assembly, through the vehicle of DNA Fingerprinting. Several experimental approaches to working with materials that are both too small to be seen and too numerous to be counted are covered. (Restriction Fragment Length Polymerization, Polymerase Chain Reaction, Short Tandem Repeat DNA Analysis, and gel electrophoresis.)

 

REQUIRED SKILLS OR PREREQUISITES:

Basic understanding of atoms and molecules, including hydrogen-bonding versus covalent bonding is helpful.
