Two brand new interactive videos, created by the University of Edinburgh’s Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre and Roslin Institute, show the laboratory techniques Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and gel electrophoresis. They have been designed to contribute to Education Scotland’s National e-Learning Offer, supporting Higher pupils to develop their knowledge and understanding of specific lab techniques. They also include real-life examples of how the techniques are used by Roslin Institute research scientists and technicians.
The videos are linked to the Higher Biology & Higher Human Biology Scottish Curriculum for Excellence and are accompanied by additional teaching materials including hands-on activities and pupil assessments.
