                   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.
