===Gene detection experiment===
 
 
 
With guesstimated cost.
 
 
 
For [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polymerase_chain_reaction PCR]:
 
* Primers (£20)
 
* PCR Reagents (£40)
 
* Pipette & tips (£30)
 
* 0.5ml tubes (£10)
 
 
 
For [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrophoresis electrophoresis]:
 
* Power source (100V, low hundreds of mA; we have this)
 
* Agarose (£30)
 
* TBE Tablets (£10)
 
* Ladder (£20)
 
* Loading buffer (£20)
 
* Gel red/SYBR safe (£30)
 
 
 
This would give us the immediate means to do gene detection (by designing primers that mark particular genes.) E.g.:
 
* Detection of species ("lamb curry test")
 
* Detection of variants of species (e.g. detect known traits based on published gene sequences)
 
* Detection of genetic modifications (GMO food)
 
* We can also send the results to a sequencing lab to get data back.
