Your students will see for themselves the relationship between genotype and phenotype by performing PCR using DNA extracted from Edvotek Quick-Plants. Unlike the wild type QuickPlants, the glabra mutant lacks trichomes (single-celled hairs) on its leaves. Using PCR, your students will compare a region of DNA that differs between the glabra mutant and the wild type plants, so they will see this variation at the DNA level. Kit includes: instructions, QuickPlant seeds, potting soil pellets and pots, PCR beads, microtubes, primers, DNA extraction buffer, plant homogenization pestles with tubes, agarose, electrophoresis buffer, DNA ladder and FlashBlue stain. All you need: micropipettes to measure between 5 and 50 �l, tips, waterbath, thermal cycler, electrophoresis apparatus and power supply.
