This lesson provides an engaging, low-cost, visual demonstration linked to interactive classroom discussion that teaches fundamental concepts underlying the molecular biology revolution. The visual demonstration and discussion develop student interest and assist their learning of the concepts. A rapid, reproducible wet-lab exercise in which students isolate plasmid DNA and visualize it by gel electrophoresis can be added if resources and time are available.
