According to the World Health Organization, between 2 and 3 million cases of skin cancer occur globally every year. Many of these cancers are caused by preventable damage to DNA by UV light during sunbathing. In this experiment, your students will expose plasmid DNA to shortwave UV light to simulate the effect of sunbathing. The DNA is then analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis to observe the damage.
