Let's talk about genes, ancient animals, find out whether it is possible to clone mammoths and dinosaurs. We’ll discuss what DNA is made of and how this molecule is released from a living organism. We’ll figure out how the proteins in our body are built on the basis of DNA, and how they work. In the practical part, we will assemble a DNA molecule using a molecular constructor, decipher the sequence of the molecule on the genetic platform, and study the chromosomes under a microscope with a magnification of 400 times.Age: 14+
