During November, the ten Year 13 pupils studying Biology A Level visited Techniquest for a practical workshop and hands on science lesson. We learnt about DNA and its structure. During a practical session we isolated the DNA present in the mitochondria of our cheek cells. After isolating the DNA we learnt how to do electrophoresis. The whole experience really brought the curriculum to life. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day, and the information we learnt will prove very useful for the forthcoming exam.
