Our Bioscience Excellence™ Molecular and Genomic Studies Kits introduce students to molecular cloning techniques, including restriction digestion, ligation, bacterial transformation and protein expression. Other techniques include the polymerase chain reaction and bacterial conjugation.
Agarose electrophoresis is an important tool for isolating DNA by its molecular weight; following separation of DNA molecules, the DNA needs to be purified from the agarose for further applications. ..
Bacterial transformation allows researchers to insert their recombinant DNA into bacteria, which then multiply making more copies of the transformed bacteria. The transformed plasmid can also be used ..
Restriction enzymes are DNA-cutting enzymes found in bacteria and as they cut within the molecule, are often called restriction endonucleases. A restriction enzyme recognizes and cuts DNA only at a pa..
