Diagnosing Gene Defects.
Examine the genetic mutation responsible for sickle-cell anaemia.
They'll search for changes in a non-human DNA sample to diagnose this hereditary blood disease.
Your students will use agarose gel electrophoresis to study sickle cell
anaemia - a painful and ultimately fatal condition resulting from a
genetic mutation which alters the body's haemoglobin.
In the process, They'll learn about genes and how genetic mutations can cause disease.
