Break in on the MdBioLab!
This morning the MdBioLab instructors returned to the truck only to find that someone had forced there way onboard the night before. Crime Scene Investigators have processed the scene and have retrieved a key piece of evidence. Inside the truck the investigators found a broken beaker with a trace of blood on it. DNA has been extracted from the blood and is ready for forensic analysis.
The police have rounded up four suspects who have each donated their DNA for analysis. The MdBioLab and police department need your students help to create a DNA profile for each suspect that will assist the D.A. in their prosecution of the case.
Upon completion of the Case of the Broken Beaker students will be able to:
