Bundle includes three complete kits outlined below:
Strawberry DNA Extraction Kit. Extract DNA from strawberries and examine some physical properties. Kit provides everything necessary (except strawberries). Designed for a class of eight teams of four and contains all the material to conduct two extractions. Contents: eight each of plastic droppers, plastic sleeves, plastic test tubes, heavy-duty poly bags, funnels, and graduated cups, four bottles of cell lysis solution, two bottles of DNA precipitation solution, package of cheesecloth squares, package of wooden splints, 32 student worksheets and guides, and teacher’s guide with MSDS.
Molecular Model of DNA and Its Replication Kit. Basic introduction to the double helix model of DNA using simple components.

Investigating and Applying Genetics: Corn Kit (Developed by SEPUP).
Explains selective breeding for desired traits in crops such as corn. Students investigate the outcomes of crosses of hybrid and dihybrid corn plants for two unlinked genetic traits: corn kernel color and sweetness. They use Punnett squares to predict the ratio of phenotypes that will be produced by different crosses and analyze the actual ratio of phenotypes of the second generation offspring. A reading describes traditional selective breeding and modern genetic engineering approaches to improving crops. Kit for 32 students. Contents: 32 Reading: Breeding Crops with Desirable Traits, two transparencies (Breeding Corn: First Generation and Breeding Corn: Second Generation), 16 corn in.Ear A, in. 16 corn in.Ear B, in. 16 corn in.Ear C, in. 16 corn in.Ear D, in. 32 student worksheets and guides, and teacher’s guide.WARNING: Choking Hazard.
