Want to know how scientists can determine who committed a crime from just a small blood sample or how genetic mutants migh be made? You can satisfy your curiosity about these questions and more by attending KCKCC's Biomanufacturing Camp: THE WONDERS OF DNA.
This four day experience at Pioneer Career Center in Leavenworth is for students who have completed 7th grade and up who are interested in learning more about DNA and genetic engineering. Students will build a DNA model, learn how to extract DNA from cells, transfer DNA into cells by heat shock transformation, amplify DNA to detect small quantities by PCR, and use restriction enzymes to identify DNA sequences. No prior DNA knowledge is necessary.
