Science + Art Saturdays: How Big is Your Genome?


Martin 315, Martin Science Building - 10 a.m.
Science + Art Saturdays are real college art and laboratory experiences for high school students. Free registration at www.randolphcollege.edu/sciencesaturdays. Popular TV shows such as Law & Order and NCIS routinely use DNA evidence to solve cases but have you ever wondered how this forensics work is actually performed in the lab? Scientists have developed specific methods that which allow them to extract and analyze DNA from even a single cell! In this session you will have the chance to extract DNA from your own cells and analyze it through the method of gel electrophoresis.
