AP Biology Students Take Part in Hands-On-Learning at DNA Lab

Early this month, students from our AP Biology class had the opportunity to take part in hands-on-learning at a DNA lab. As part of the college laboratories that the AP Biology classes perform, the classes go to the DNA Learning Center in Harlem. There they perform a restriction enzyme lab. The objectives of the lab are to learn and understand all the theory involved in what restriction enzymes do and what they are as well as to learn the techniques used and the reasons for each procedure. Students became proficient at working with micropipettes, gel electrophoresis, hot water baths, micro-centrifuges and how to interpret their gels.
