Students Conduct BEST Science! Experiments

Students of Janine Koenig, Biology II instructor, conduct an analysis of PCR product by Gel Electrophoresis. The class was among three-days of experiments that also included chromosome analysis of normal and cancer cells and isolation of genomic DNA from HeLa Cells. It was part of Dominican’s participation in “BEST (Bioscience Enrichment for Students and Teachers) Science! – a partnership between Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) in New Orleans, Ochsner Medical Center, and local school districts. The objective of BEST Science! is to advance an interest among New Orleans area high school students in biomedical research and health sciences and to ultimately stimulate further education and vocation in these areas.
