DNA Extraction

We’ve talked about it, read about it, looked at diagrams and illustrations…maybe even seen a photograph. Why not try extracting some DNA and looking at it in person? It may sound difficult, but it really is very simple and you can usually do it using items found in your kitchen.

1. Click here (Links to an external site.) to follow the instructions to complete a DNA extraction.
(follow the instructions completely and you should get good results)

2. Write a reflection about the process.
(this means any problems, questions and resolutions you experienced)

3. Don’t forget to include the source of the DNA and your opinion regarding the exercise.
(was it fun and interesting, etc.)
