Lab kits

practical kits for teaching genomics

It can be daunting to design and deliver a whole genomics practical to use with students, but luckily there are a lot of pre-made kits and resources out there that have been specifically designed for educational use.

In this video Matt King introduced some of the kits he’s used in his classroom to support teaching of core genomics concepts such as PCR and electrophoresis. He also discusses how he’s been able to access different funding routes to support getting these kits. Next week, we’ll be highlighting another teacher who has applied and received funding to support an extra-curricular sequencing project.

What lab kits have you come across? Have you used any in your classroom?
