Advanced Higher Biology  

 National 4/5 Biology Field Trip - March 2014


S6 Advanced Higher Day - University of Aberdeen

9th September 2013 - Advanced Higher Biology students - Christina Bondzio and Rebecca Leivesley - spent the day at the University of Aberdeen School of Life Sciences. They joined 70 other S6 students, from schools all around the North East of Scotland, for the popular event. During the day they carried out a restriction enzyme digest of Lambda phage DNA followed by seperation by DNA gel electrophoresis - sounds impressive doesn't it?
