Strawberry DNA Experiment

We have been learning about reproduction and DNA in class. Today we carried out an experiment to extract the DNA from a strawberry. We discussed where extraction of DNA might be used to help in cloning, forensic crime investigation, studying genetic diseases and bacteria and viruses in the environment.

It took quite a few steps and we had to be very careful but we were so happy when we finally managed to lift the DNA extract out on a cocktail stick.
