Teacher Training: Applications in Biotechnology - Forensic Molecular Biology

Join us at Kennesaw State University for this day-long workshop where we will discuss the standards, principles, and applications of molecular biology to forensics in a hands-on learning environment. Participants will isolate their own DNA from a few hairs, then amplify and analyze the polymorphic D1S80 locus on chromosome 1 using PCR and agarose gel electrophoresis.

Event Description:

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) can be used to amplify polymorphic regions of DNA, chromosomal regions that vary in length from individual to individual.  A “DNA fingerprint” is generated by analyzing thirteen core polymorphic loci within an individual’s chromosomes.  In forensics, DNA fingerprints are compared between crime scene DNA and the DNA of a suspect.  DNA fingerprinting is also used to determine paternity/maternity or identify human remains. 

This day-long workshop will discuss the standards, principles, and applications of molecular biology to forensics in a hands-on learning environment.  Participants will isolate their own DNA from a few hairs, then amplify and analyze the polymorphic D1S80 locus on chromosome 1 using PCR and agarose gel electrophoresis.
