Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School – Biology Students Visit UoL School Of Life Sciences

25 Jun 2019

On Wednesday 12th June, our Year 12 Biology students were invited to the University of Liverpool School of Life Sciences to take part in a practical. They spent the day in the laboratory learning how to use a range of specialist equipment including micropipettes, rocking platforms and protein gel electrophoresis.

The girls worked hard to separate the proteins found in the muscles of fish, in order to build a phylogenetic tree to show the evolutionary relationships between the various species. The girls worked well, in groups, using a range of equipment and techniques, that were new to them. Well done, girls!
