MYP 5 students got hands-on experience while learning how to extract DNA from a plant cell, by experimenting with strawberries! To do this, they mixed and squeezed the strawberries with soap and salt, to break down the cell wall and the cell membrane. Then, they filtered the mixture and added isopropanol (alcohol), to separate the DNA from the solution. After that, it was just a matter of "going fishing!" and grabbing the DNA thread with the tweezers.
