In this video, from Teachers TV, science teacher Lucy Hutt gives an extended lesson on DNA and proteins, as well as cancer and its underlying causes. The students then watch the related programme Cancer and The Genome: The Issue.

To reinforce students' understanding of DNA, they perfrom a bacterial transformation experiment that involves putting a 'glow' gene from a jellyfish into a bacterium.

To conclude, Lucy presents the results of her bacterial transformation experiment and is able to show her students how the bacteria now has an eerie green glow.

We see parts of the lesson and an analysis of how it went.

The related programme, Cancer and the Genome: The Issue, is also available to view.
