Résumé

The Ecole de l'ADN at the Palais de la découverte in Paris offers a practical approach to the techniques of molecular biology and outlines methods for studying DNA. Here, students in their second-last year of high school learn how to reveal a genetic imprint using methods similar to those used in forensic laboratories, but to simplify the procedure the DNA they work with is that of the bacteriophage lambda.
