Extracting DNA in Your Kitchen Experiment
What’s happening when you do this experiment?
DNA (DeoxyriboNucleic Acid) carries instructions for the structure of every living thing, or organism. Organisms are made of cells, and each cell has a copy of the DNA coiled into its nucleus. When the cell wall and nucleus are opened, DNA can be extracted. Strawberry fruits have long DNA strands that are easy to see, so they are a good choice for DNA extraction.
