The animations require the latest Flash 7 and Shockwave plug-ins.
15.1: Tutorial: Genetic testing: Identifying the sickle-cell allele

This tutorial explains how restriction enzymes and gel electrophoresis can are used to test for genetically transmitted diseases.

15.2: Tutorial: Constructing a DNA library

This tutorial demonstrates how a DNA library is created

15.3: Activity: The polymerase chain reaction
ThumbnailSee how the polymerase chain reaction is used to make millions of copies of discrete segments of DNA in a short period of time.

15.4: Tutorial: Human cloning

This tutorial explores how therapeutic cloning may be used to produce stem cells that have a wide range of medical applications, and explains how this process differs from reproductive cloning.

15.5: Activity: Genetic engineering
ThumbnailThis animation explores how plasmids can be used to genetically engineer a tastier strawberry.

15.6: Activity: Gene therapy for ADA deficiency
