Educational Materials Biology Educational Materials Physiology and Health Learning Activities
Students can perform the same test procedures that scientists use to identify genetic mutations that signify the presence of colorectal cancer and its cause.

  • Students Determine the Patterns of Heredity
  • Material for Six Lab Groups
  • Time Required: ~60 Minutes
  • For Employing Genetic Screening Techniques Used in Research Labs
Students run electrophoresis tests on DNA and analyze unstable DNA banding on the electrophoresis gel. DNA from a tumor appears as multiple bands instead of the normal two, indicating the presence of cancer.

After obtaining test results, students analyze the results and construct a family pedigree to determine the patterns of heredity. The activity comes with enough material to run three gels.
