The students can work independently or in pairs. They can use the web site to answer the questions or the worksheet attached if you want to have it pre-printed for them.
It can also be used as a precursor to completing an actual gel electrophoresis lab. For example it can be assigned as a homework activity before the gel electrophoresis lab.
Note: If the students are going to print from the computer make sure once they have started the lab they run it all the way. The answers to the discussion question can not be saved. For example they can not start it today and come back to it tomorrow.
