DNA Biotechnology introduced in the classroom
Bishop Verot senior Gerard Mulles pulls a practice sample during a DNA Gel Electrophoresis lab in AP Anatomy and Physiology class. DNA biotechnology is used in research, medical and forensic settings. This technology allows students the ability to separate fragments of DNA as well as study their results both qualitatively and quantitatively. Examples of this technology is used in gene testing as well as forensic DNA fingerprinting. Most students do not have access to this technology until well into their college careers, but it is now available to students here at Bishop Verot.
