Year 6 - Extracting Strawberry DNA!

This afternoon, Year 6 built on their previous DNA research and spent the time extracting DNA from strawberries! We had to follow a specific set of instructions and also used a wide range of scientific equipment. We could not believe the results when we saw the DNA separating from the mixture; we were then able to extract this and take a closer look. You could try this at home too - just search for 'strawberry DNA experiment' to find out more!
