Important! If you cannot launch anything from this database, please follow the step-by-step instructions on the software page.
Please Note: Many models are linked to directly from within the database. When an activity employs our scripting language, Pedagogica, as do some of the "guided" activities, the initial download may take several minutes. Subsequent activities will not take a long time. See this page for further instructions.
Laboratory techniques such as Southern Blot, fingerprinting, and genetic engineering all make use of the weak attractions that allow DNA to hybridize, or bind to, other nucleotides. In this activity students review hydrogen bonds, and then explore partial and complete hybridization, manipulate binding with temperature, and design their own probe.
