  • Assignment:
    • Using the instructions and resources below complete AP Lab Investigation 8: Bacterial Transformations and submit a Full AP Lab Report.
    • The files can be found in the in your 365 Team “Files Tab” in the “Class Materials” folder or via my class website (http://sd41blogs.ca/taylora/).
    • Read the lab outline, including the procedure and follow-up questions/calculations.
    • We will be using a general virtual simulation to allow you to visualize how this lab is suppose to proceed if we were in class and actually able to perform it. However, you will still be using the AP Lab outline as your guide and answering all questions from it as if we actually did the lab in class. You will also be using the virtual lab to observe/record your results that you will using in answering the questions and calculations from the AP Lab.
      • Go to this website http://www.classzone.com/cz/books/bio_07/book_home.htm?state=NJ
      • Click on “Virtual Labs”; this works through both Microsoft Edge and Explorer, I tried both, I am not sure about other programs.
      • You have to have pop-ups enabled and allow “Adobe Flash” to run.
      • Proceed through the “Virtual Lab” as instructed by the simulation recording your predictions, observations to be included in your AP Lab Report.
    • Before you close the simulation make sure you recorded how many colonies grew on the plate with the ampicillin for the Bacterial that were treated with the Plasmid along with any drawings of the four plates to include in your Lab Report.
    • To perform the “Calculating Transformation Efficiency” section use the values from the AP Procedure but the results from the virtual simulation.
    • For “Designing Your Own Investigation” you of course don’t need to actually do this you just need to outline/describe a “proposed” investigation including things like your variables, what you are testing etc.
  • If you cannot get the above virtual simulation to work you could try this simulation http://www.phschool.com/science/biology_place/labbench/lab6/concepts1.html (Just do 6-I Bacterial Transformations) or watch this video as it will explain the lab from start to finish. https://dnalc.cshl.edu/resources/dnatoday/2020-virtual-lab-bt.html.
  • This can be done in a group of 2 but no larger groups will be allowed.
  • If you need help you can attend Office Hours or you can always see if you can find some information on the internet if you cannot wait for our scheduled Office Hours.
