DNA is extracted from human cells for a variety of reasons. Try this virtual laboratory to extract DNA from human cells.
Sort and measure DNA strands by running your own gel electrophoresis experiment.
Flow cytometry can sort and count mixtures of tiny particles. Here, you’ll use this tool to get information about the cells in blood and bone marrow samples.
PCR is a relatively simple and inexpensive tool that you can use to focus in on a segment of DNA and copy it billions of times over. See how it works!
Scientists are using DNA microarrays to investigate everything from cancer to pest control. Use a DNA microarray to investigate the differences between a healthy cell and a cancer cell.
