With this miniPCR DNA Disovery System, students experiment with the same DNA analysis equipment as that used on the ISS. Helpful but not required to enter the Genes in Space competition.
Genes in Space is a nationwide challenge that invites teachers and students in grades 7-12 to design innovative experiments that use DNA analysis to solve real-world problems in space exploration. The winning experiment is launched to the International Space Station. The competition is sponsored by miniPCR, Math for America, Boeing, New England Biolabs, Inc., and the ISS National Laboratory.
This kit includes everything you need for this DNA analysis:
- miniPCR machine
- blueGel electropheris system
