PCR Dash

Seniors in the Biology and Medicine Pathway are using physical movement to learn the PCR process. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) enables researchers to produce millions of copies of a specific DNA sequence in approximately two hours. This automated process bypasses the need to use bacteria for amplifying DNA. Dr. Schwartz has made a game out of the lesson seeing which team of five can produce the most copies of DNA. The class will then perform an actual PCR lab after they understand the process.IMG_0259.JPG
