This lab presents a scenario in which a laptop has been stolen and DNA fingerprinting is necessary to solve the crime. Students are each given a DNA sequence to check against the perpetrator's. It's a quasi-lab, where students use paper and scissors to simulate DNA. This resource is part of the Developing Biology course which contains units on Microscopes; Biochemistry; Cells; Cellular Transport; DNA; Photosynthesis and Respiration; Mitosis and Meiosis; Genetics; and Evolution.
