Advanced Higher Biology students – Christina Bondzio and Rebecca Leivesley – spent the day at the University of Aberdeen School of Life Sciences. They joined 70 other S6 students, from schools all around the North East of Scotland, for the popular event. During the day they carried out a restriction enzyme digest of Lambda phage DNA followed by seperation by DNA gel electrophoresis – sounds impressive doesn’t it?
