Year 10 Extract Strawberry DNA

Year 10 extracted DNA from strawberries in a procedure which involved breaking down the cells using detergent then using cold ethanol to separate the DNA from the mixture. The layer of bubbles is a layer of DNA precipitate. The whole class did really well all managing to follow instruction, with special recognition to Shannon Richards, Josh Laidlaw, James Jerrett, Andrew Foxcroft and Lilly Cann who went on to look at the DNA under the microscope.
