High school biology students go molecular

Posted: April 23rd, 2013


MINDING THEIR PCRs – Lake Superior State University biology professor Martha Hutchins critiques the laboratory technique of high school students (from left) Andrew VanSuneren, Casey Pepin, and Luke Terwilliger. Advanced-placement biology classes from Sault High worked with LSSU biology and chemistry faculty on April 19 in LSSU labs, doing stuff like pGLO bacterial transformation and preparing gels for electrophoresis. The trio pictured here was simulating ways to amplify or duplicate DNA strands, using a technique called polymerase chain reaction, or PCR. Run a Web search on "LSSU EAL" to explore some of the state-of-the-art research tools at Lake State. (LSSU/John Shibley)

BUDDING MOLECULAR BIOLOGISTS – Lake Superior State University biology student Ashley Denome (right) works with Sault High students Kati Dody (left) and Courtney Shier as they simulate ways to amplify or duplicate DNA strands, using a technique called polymerase chain reaction, or PCR. Forty-four advanced-placement biology students worked with LSSU biology and chemistry faculty on April 19 in LSSU labs, doing stuff like pGLO bacterial transformation and preparing gels for electrophoresis. Denome is a senior in biology with a minor in chemistry from Escanaba, Mich. Run a Web search on "LSSU biology" to read more about that area of study at Lake State. (LSSU/John Shibley)
