How are the forensic markers different from Marker I, II and III?
Caren prepares all the forensic markers at SEP, while Markers I, II and III are ordered.
What type of DNA was used for the restriction digest?
SAMPLE PREP TIPS:
The DNA forensics lab is a version of SEP's DNA Lab 1: Pre-cut DNA. The DNA in this lab has been cut using different restriction enzymes. These pre-cut lambda DNA samples will be used as "suspects". One sample will have double the amount to act as "suspect" and "evidence".
SEP Teachers: if you have multiple classes and want to have different culprits, you can request 2X of one of the Forensics Markers so you can have different culprits for different classes
The chart above shows the banding patterns of the different pre-cut DNA samples SEP provides. The first three samples, Marker I, Marker II, and Marker III are the standard markers provided in DNA Lab 1. In this lab, we provide three extra forensic markers that has also been pre-cut. The labels on the tubes will tell you which samples you were given.
