In collaboration with: Science in practice – Fondazione Golinelli project area
Secondary school students took part in three labs – meat ID, GM product screening and genetic polymorphisms using Alu PCR – and tested the varyious applications of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), a molecular biology technique devised in 1983 by Kary Mullis, who went on to win the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for it in 1993.
2. Labs for primary and secondary schools
In collaboration with: School of Ideas, a project area of the Fondazione Golinelli
During two labs, primary and secondary school students experienced some of the techniques used in molecular biology in an interactive and amusing way by using everyday examples.
