To accompany the lecture series Potent Biology: Stem Cells, Cloning, and Regeneration.
Topics include: PCR, DNA Sequencing, Genetic Engineering, and Microarray. This guide includes multiple classroom-ready worksheets to accompany HHMI’s virtual labs.
Topics include: DNA structure and function, DNA replication, damage to DNA and eukaryotic chromosomal structure.
This activity supports the film The Origin of Species: Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree. Students are guided to sort the lizard species by appearance, then generate a phylogenetic tree using the lizards’ DNA sequences to evaluate whether species that appear similar are closely related...
This activity can be used in conjunction with the short film The Double Helix. It introduces students to the classic experiment by Matthew Meselson and Franklin Stahl, which revealed that DNA replication follows the semiconservative model.
