Summary

Ever wanted to be a “DNA detective”? Here’s your chance, working alongside molecular geneticist Dr Sandy Richardson and bioinformatician Dr Adam Ewing. Our DNA holds an incredible amount of information that can be used for everything from solving crimes to treating disease. However, it is so small that researchers must use special tools to unlock its secrets. As an Apprentice, you’ll learn about the different approaches used to study DNA sequences. Then, you’ll do a hands-on experiment using enzymatic digestion and gel electrophoresis to analyse and identify a piece of “mystery DNA”

Notes

– Capacity limit of 30 per session
– Participants must be aged 15 and over
