Excellent experiments developed by the team at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Every student should perform the two PCR experiments that use tPA-25 Alu sequences and DS180 VNTR detection. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories currently recommend an experiment that looks at Alu in a different region of the genome, since the Alu in tPA-25 has been found to be associated with one form of heart disease. Of course, Cold Spring Harbor Labs supports and continues to develop new exercises.
