An Introduction to DNA: Spectrophotometry, Degradation, and the 'Frankengel' Experiment
In this laboratory students perform three exercises as an introduction to the basics of handling and analyzing DNA. In the first, they expose circular plasmid, linear phage, and high molecular weight genomic DNA samples to a variety of physical, thermal, chemical, and enzymatic conditions that might be expected to affect DNA integrity. The DNA's are analyzed by electrophoresis on a group agarose gel. In the second, they pour and reconstruct a "Frankengel" (a gel containing sections with three di
One of the most remarkable features of modern European history is the gradual emergence of that theoretical reasoning and experimental practice focused on the natural world that today we call science. In this unit we throw light on that eventual emergence of modern science in Europe by examining its beginnings in Greece and making comparisons with the early achievements of Chinese and Islamic science. You then return to medieval Europe in order to understand the intellectual and social origins o
