Supermarket Science: Investigating Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
Science and Society
In this activity, students will use mock gel electrophoresis data to identify some common organisms that have been genetically modified. Gel electrophoresis is a technique that separates DNA, according to size, using an electric field. Students are introduced to the process by watching a YouTube video on the process. A PowerPoint provides information on what are genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
