In this lab students will understand the action and specificity of restriction enzymes, while learning the components involved in the process of DNA electrophoresis and the role of each component as it applies to the entire process of electrophoresis.
Students will use a respiration chamber to measure and record the rate of oxygen consumption (cellular respiration) using germinating seeds versus a non-germinating control sample.
Students will study the process of artificial selection using Innovating Science fast growing plants.
Students will use a respiration chamber to measure and record the rate of oxygen consumption in plants.
Students will study the cellular steps involved in DNA replication and cell division in both mitosis and meiosis.
