  • Simulate the DNA fingerprinting procedure
  • Construct and interpret an autoradiogram
  • Compare and evaluate DNA fingerprint patterns
  • Compare the strengths/limitations of DNA profiling
  • Ideal for KS3 and 4 students
  • 'Pop it' beads are completely re-useable allowing repeated use by an unlimited number of classes
