What will my pupils do in the workshop?
A full day hands-on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) workshop for Higher and Advanced Higher Biology pupils. Using their own DNA, pupils will discover and compare their version of a bitter taste receptor gene (their genotype) to their ability to taste the bitter compound (their phenotype). They will use cutting-edge equipment to carry out the modern laboratory techniques of DNA extraction, PCR, restriction enzyme digestion and gel electrophoresis. The workshop will incorporate some time viewing relevant parts of the Museum's science galleries.
