Nettleton High School AP Biology classes went to Arkansas State University’s Biosciences lab to conduct a recommended AP lab experiement.
Students used restriction enzymes to cut a sample of DNA into fragments and then used the gel electrophoresis equipment to separate out the fragments based on charges and sizes. This process creates a gel with colored bands throughout it that can be analyzed to identify genes of interest.
Students worked through out the day to complete the lab.
