Photos for Strawberry DNA Extraction:

Early College High School (11/8/17)

Students from the Early College High School participated in a strawberry DNA extraction exercise during one of their Biology lessons.  They were fairly intrigued with the exercise and insisted on taking pictures of their collected DNA and even taking it home with them.  This exercise not only taught them how to handle common laboratory tools and reagents, but it also gave them confidence in their knowledge and abilities.
