Strawberry dna extraction conclusion
The purpose of this lab was to extract DNA from strawberries. When we put rubbing alcohol into the mixture of extracted strawberry juice, dish soap, and salt mixture, swirls began to form in the cup. When we placed a stirrer in the cup and pulled it out, there was a string-like substance. This substance was the extracted DNA. In this experiment, the dish soap dissolved the layers of the cell membrane. The salt kept the DNA and proteins from mixing. The rubbing alcohol was kept cold because the colder the ethanol, the less soluble the DNA will be in it. The strawberry experiment was a success because we were able to extract DNA from the strawberry.
I was very impressed with your wonderful article. I hope you canKey conceptsDNAGenomeGenesExtractionLaboratory techniquesIntroductionHave you ever wondered how scientists extract DNA from an organism. Overall, DNA tells an organism how to develop and function, and is so important that this complex compound is found in virtually every one of its cells. Each cell has an entire copy of the same set of instructions, and this set is called the genome.

My kids like to look through the experiment list and watch the videos.
