Strawberry DNA Extraction

Taylor and I attempted to extract the DNA of a strawberry inspired by the Sick Science video. Following the procedure with a few hiccups, we were able to find the DNA of strawberry but not in the white, stringy like shape it was supposed to be. We had some trial error when straining the substance and switching cups, leading us to have trouble extracting DNA. We found it fascinating that strawberries need DNA for the same reason we do: to create our genetic code which determines the traits of an organism such as the color and shape of a strawberry.

  1. I’m sorry your strawberry DNA extraction went a bit awry, but I think your video was pretty stellar, you and Taylor work very well together. Crazy how similar our genetic codes are too!
