Gel electrophoresis is a powerful tool used by researchers to isolate and purify DNA fragments and to determine the presence or absence of particular genes in an organism. Based on a real life research question regarding plant disease resistance, students will perform gel electrophoresis, analyze a completed gel, and determine the gene responsible for disease resistance. This program is 1 1/2 hours. This program takes place in the Micro World Investigate Lab.

Science Curriculum Correlation(s): 7.L.2, Bio.3.3
