BioMed Basics: What Happened to Anna Garcia?

Analyzing Gel Electrophoresis Chambers, PBS students learn more about the mock crime subject.

What happened to Anna Garcia? The Principles of Biomedical Sciences (PBS) Biomedical program is working their way to find out what happened to Anna Garcia, the subject of a mock crime scene. The PBS program utilizes DNA Gel Electrophoresis, a technique used to see how the charged molecules separate according to size, so that they can later find Anna’s DNA at the crime scene. PBS has been working on Anna’s case since day one of school and plan on going to the end to figure out what caused her death.
