Discovering DNA - the Recipe of Life
Through this Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) resource, students gain an understanding of the role of DNA within cells of the human body, and an appreciation that it is the uniqueness of their own DNA ‘recipe' which makes them individuals.
The activities were first run as workshops designed for students aged 11-14 years in support of their science education and for students aged 9-12 as curriculum extension exercises.
BBSRC is a part of Research Councils UK (RCUK).
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
