Initial Machine Testing

The Original Design

Experimenting With the Connections

When we unplugged the mounting plate from the open PCR circuit board, the display screen on the PCR box did not work.

When we unplugged the white wire that connects the open PCR circuit board to the heating block, there was no temperature reading on the display screen.

Test Run

(First Open PCR test: 10/25/12. We had a successful and simple run of PCR)


Polymerase Chain Reaction

(Add your work from Week 3, Part 1 here)

Flourimeter Measurements

(Add your work from Week 3, Part 2 here)

Research and Development

Specific Cancer Marker Detection - The Underlying Technology

(Add a write-up of the information discussed in Week 3's class)

(BONUS points: Use a program like Powerpoint, Word, Illustrator, Microsoft Paint, etc. to illustrate how primers bind to the cancer DNA template, and how Taq polymerases amplify the DNA. Screen-captures from the OpenPCR tutorial might be useful. Be sure to credit the source if you borrow images.)


(Your group will add the results of your Fluorimeter measurements from Week 4 here)
