The examination of forensic evidence relies on established biological and chemical methods. This masterclass will enable students to gain hands-on practical experience with a range of analytical methods to conduct biological testing on forensic specimens.
During the Biological Analysis workshop, students will have the opportunity to apply presumptive and confirmatory tests to biological fluids, in order to identify the origin of the sample. Students will then gain practical experience in DNA extraction, PCR amplification and gel electrophoresis. Other analysis types can be requested in advance, to ensure learners gain maximum benefit from the masterclass.
There are a broad range of careers within the STEM sector (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), and a Science degree will equip you for a wide variety of opportunities.
