Comparison of Protein Sequences From Two Samples of Crabmeat Using Gel Electrophoresis As an Introduction To the Biotechnology Lab

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Students discover that proteins that are the product of DNA translation are different for different species. They determine that by analyzing their mass and charge they can differentiate between two different species. They use some of the equipment used in the biotechnology lab including the pipette and gel electrophoresis to separate two different proteins.
