Students in ninth grade living environment classes at P.J. Gelinas Junior High School recently visited Stony Brook University to work in some of the DNA labs on campus. Students learned about the different aspects of forensic science and practiced some of the techniques investigators use when working to solve crimes.
DNA profiling was the focus behind most of the activities. Students carried out an authentic gel electrophoresis experiment and created DNA “fingerprints” to help solve a fictional crime.
