DNA Binding Dyes Scenario Info

Go to Activity


This activity explores the equilibrium of dyes that self-assemble into DNA templates. Students use knowledge of equilibrium and quantitative spectroscopy to explore different dyes that bind selectively to DNA molecules. In this activity, students use the virtual lab and a UV/Vis spectrometer simulation to explore the equilibrium constants for a set of Cyanine Dyes that Bind to DNA. (This activity uses the virtual lab and a UV/VIS spectrometer simulation).
