Use this series of video modules to learn more about laboratory ‘tools of the trade’, good scientific practice, and technologies such as the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), gel electrophoresis and DNA sequencing.
DNA barcoding is a genetic technique that scientists at the Australian Museum use to identify species and measure biodiversity. Watch all eight DNA barcoding modules on the Australian Museum website and discuss the guiding questions.
Put your skills and knowledge to the test with our DNA barcoding activity! You can use real DNA sequences from scientists in the Australian Museum Research Institute (AMRI) and bioinformatic tools in ‘DNA Subway’ to solve a scientific puzzle.
The modules and activity can be completed over a series of lessons or set as part of a longer unit.
