Complete two different gel electrophoresis labs, both available from miniONE as kits.  In this full-day workshop, you will use pre-prepared DNA samples to explore the alleles of the casein gene in dairy cows and determine which cow’s milk is better for cheese production. You will also use DNA samples that simulate BRCA breast cancer markers to investigate the scientific and ethical considerations associated with genetic testing.

Massachusetts teachers that complete the workshop and submit a pre- and post-workshop assignment are eligible for 10 PDPs.

 All participants can enroll in our equipment lending program.

 Lunch is provided and parking is free
