Reference for “Mummy Magic” <http://www.tryscience…ents/experiments_mummy_athome.html> (accessed 10/07/2003 8:44AM) Student Research on Embalming Reference Field Trips • Dolan DNA Learning Center, Cold Spring Harbor, New York, September 2003 • We participated in an experiment which examines DNA on the basis of forensic DNA fingerprinting. We prepared a sample of our own cheek cell DNA by using a saline mouthwash. • Learning Objectives Achieved: - How to retrieve living tissue from human body. - How to obtain and separated DNA from cells with the process of gel electrophoresis Field Trip • American Museum of Natural History, New York • Research: Frozen Tissue Collection of the Ambrose Monell Collection for Molecular and Microbial Research • Objectives Achieved: • Learned how the museum’s frozen tissue collection could be used to support a broad range of research. • Viewed the frozen tissue storage vats and learned about the liquid nitrogen layer kept at low temperatures for the prevention of tissue degradation. • Became familiar with the computer database which is able to track each bar-coded vial, giving source of specimen and its record of thawing and refreezing.
