Impressive. You clicked on a link to read an entire article about electrophoresis. Or maybe you just clicked on the link to see if we really have articles behind each of these headlines. Keep trying.EGRHS science teachers Janyce Huff and Jeff Webb applied for a $5,887.18 grant from the Foundation to fund new Mini One Electrophoresis machines. To those who don't know, Mini One Electrophoresis devices "delivers the complete hands-on electrophoresis experience with real-time visualization of results within a 45-minute class session. The system combines agarose gel electrophoresis and DNA band visualization into one compact package that is efficient and safe to use. Students can make and load gels, view DNA bands separating, and take pictures from their mobile device for lab reports or to share with friends and family. The MiniOne System is the solution that enables you to teach electrophoresis with ease and confidence in the classroom."
To put it another way, the Mini One system is a really cool way for students to learn about DNA. Thank you, Foundation donors, for making this possible!
