Depending on time, your teacher may complete this step for you. Below are links to her medical histories. We had to measure the angle of the pelvic bone and also the angle of the nose and eye circle. The gel should take 30-45 minutes to run. Abstract: In this activity, my group and I were selected to examine human remains of a parts found in a park. What is gel electrophoresis and how can the results of this technique be interpreted?.
Also, make sure to note the contents of each tube in your laboratory journal. Suggest reasons why it was helpful to digest each of your samples with two different restriction enzymes? Make sure the loading dye is migrating out of the well and moving towards the positive pole. Then use a scalpel to cut through the entire length of the right atrium and and left ventricle. Examine your results and make a sketch of the gel in your lab notebook. The balloon flattens the plaque, opening up the artery again so blood can flow through easily.
Secondly, we created our own experiment. In the space below, write a paragraph explaining what you would say to the other family to convince them that the science techniques used prove the bones do not belong to their loved one. Draw a diagram of the gel in your lab notebook. Remember to use a fresh pipette tip for each transfer. This is important in biomedical sciences because it is important to know how to help people who have blood clots or large plaques built up in their artery walls.
We created a concept map to help describe this, which can be found below. This is an important skill to have in the biomedical sciences because it is important to be an expert on the human body and be able to identify certain structures of different mammalian organs, including the heart. You do not want to contaminate your samples. After looking over her medical histories, we were asked to complete a diagnosis for her. These pieces can then be separated and compared using the process of gel electrophoresis. We also constructed the digestive system in our manikin.
Each tube will have a final volume of 40µl. The farther the bands get through the gel, the shorter they are because shorter bands can move through the gel faster. It is important to be able to perform a Glucose Tolerance Test in the biomedical sciences because it is a key method to diagnosing diabetes. During this time, continue work on the Student Resource Sheet. Gently flick the side of each tube to mix the contents.
We completed a Case Study which is attached below. As your samples digest, continue with Steps 8 -10. Use the websites listed below to complete the questions and activities in Part A of the Student Response Sheet. At the end of the incubation time, you will need to add 5µl of 10X gel loading solution to tubes 1-4 to stop the reaction. It is also important to be able to follow specific procedure for dissecting the different structures in order to be able to view it properly once it is cut.
Calorimetry is a good skill to have because it allows you to understand which types of foods and nutrients give you the most energy. Place your tubes in the bath as directed by your teacher. With this, we described the process of digestion, starting with the consumption of the food, all the way down to the colon. Use conclusion questions 3,4,5, 6 to help guide some of your summation. If possible, attach a labeled photograph of your gel to the completed case report. It is important to be very familiar with these rules in the medical field because failure to do so could result in harm to the patient whose information has been shared. We researched the different components of the digestive system and completed a student response sheet.
It's also important to know that angioplasties are just a temporary fix also, and a stent insertion would be the next step. The student response sheet is found linked below. When the kidneys don't reabsorb water, more urine is produced. To the left is a graph that shows all four of our trials. In this activity, we examined the medical history of an 11 year old girl, Melissa Martin. How can the field of biometrics be used to verify and protect identity? Allow the samples to cool a few minutes before loading them on the gel.
