Another Great DNA Extraction in Biology

Biology is the study of life, and life is created from our DNA, which stands for deoxyribonucleic acid. DNA is inside of every one of our cells (microscopic), but every strand of DNA is over 2m long! Amazing, right? 

Today my students extracted and looked at the DNA of a strawberry. It’s the white stringy stuff in the photo. Everyone successfully extracted the DNA and investigated the process.

It was a great day for science … and strawberry understanding.
