Aloha from Hawaii. Johanna Anton shared miniPCR with intro Biology students at Hawai’i Community College – Pālamanui campus, which is the only community college on the West Side of Hawaii Island. This was the first ever PCR lab at Palamanui! Students did the Missy Baker Missing Learning Lab using miniPCR and the blueGel system.
The biology instructor said “I am glad that they were able to carry out the entire experiment, from the beginning to the results. It was also great to talk about macromolecules, genetics, and enzymes! I think they really got a sense how all of the information that they have been learning throughout the semester is interrelated and relevant, and important in application of science in real world like forensics.”
