Heat-it Kit™


Engineer cells with a DNA program where gene expression can be manually controlled with temperature.(Manually control genes!)

The Heat-it Kit lets you grow and engineer bacteria with a DNA plasmid that can be controlled with heat. Decide when you want the DNA program to turn on by choosing the temperature you grow the bacteria at. Turn the DNA program on and off to create tree ring patterns in the growth. 

This kit is also a great addition to your BioArt toolkit.

All-in-one kit with no prior experience necessary. A perfect step in exploring the world of biotechnology.

Compatible with Ch. 7 of Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero book.

A DNA Playground is recommended. Prior completion of Canvas, Engineer-it, and Extract-itKits is recommended. 

In this kit you will

Make selective & non-selective agar, pour petri dishes, streak bacteria, make bacteria chemically competent, engineer bacteria using DNA plasmid (bacterial transformation), create positive and negative controls, incubate at different temperatures, view/analyze results.
