Confirming the Amylase gene using PCR (Lab 13h)

This kit is designed to teach 8 groups of four students the principles of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)


The kit contains the reagents to allow students to:

  • Set up multiple PCR reactions using pAmylase plasmid DNA and bacterial genomic DNA templates
  • Set up a PCR negative control 
  • Carry out the PCR reaction
  • Load, separate, and visualize PCR DNA products on an agarose gel
  • Confirm a suspected origin of the amylase gene in nature



  • For 8 groups of 4 students 
  • Requires thermocycler/ PCR machine, agarose electrophoresis equipment including UV transilluminator (light box) and micropipettes and tips



  • HS-LS1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
  • LS1.A: Structure and Function
