Edvotek at Home: Restriction Enzyme Analysis of DNA

Our next EDVOTEK® at Home lesson is modeled off of our kit Restriction Enzyme Analysis of DNA. In this lesson, students will virtually explore restriction digests, gel electrophoresis, and size determination using a standard curve.While we believe hands-on experimentation is…

Biotech Basics: DNA Ligase – Building a Bridge with DNA

DNA ligase is one of the most important, but least celebrated, enzymes used in modern biotechnology. This enzyme plays a very important role in DNA replication and repair by acting like a “glue” that can connect different DNA fragments to…
