How to Extract DNA From FruitsHow to Extract DNA From FruitsG. Carboni, January 2007Text editing by Donald Desaulniers, Ph.D.CONTENTSINTRODUCTION PROCEDURE Summary of the procedure Preliminary operations Preparation of the extracting solution Preparation of the mush Extracting the DNA Filtration Removing the proteins Precipitating the DNA Observation through the microscope CONCLUSION REFERENCESFigure 1: Test tube with DNA extractINTRODUCTIONIn recent years, it is not uncommon to read articles on DNA in bothscientific and popular magazines.
DNA is regularly mentioned in the news and isoften featured in TV detective or crime-scene investigation dramas. DNA, alsoknown as DeoxyriboNucleic Acid, is a long molecule that holds the geneticinformation for all living beings, be it vegetable, animal or a simplemicroorganisms. It is capable of copying itself and can synthesize RNA (RiboNucleicAcid).Key conceptsDNAGenomeGenesExtractionLaboratory techniquesIntroductionHave you ever wondered how scientists extract DNA from an organism.
Overall, DNA tells an organism how to develop and function, and is so important that this complex compound is found in virtually every one of its cells. Each cell has an entire copy of the same set of instructions, and this set is called the genome. Scientists study DNA for many reasons: They can fiThese are the papers that I wrote for classes in my University.
Lab 1: DNA ExtractionAim: To isolate DNA from Kiwi fruit and to observe how it looks like.Purpose: To see DNA with my own eyes and understand that it exists in all cells even though it is plant or food. Think about seesaws (or teeter totters) and how to balance them. For this lab, we are extracting DNA from a Kiwi fruit. PROBLEM: How does the different fruit differentiate the amount of DNA extracted. Science Cafe. Imagination Station. The DNA will be extracted using the basic biochemical techniques for isolating, purifying, and digesting DNA molecules.
The moisture test will be completed usiActivity 1 - DNA ExtractionWe will extract DNA from fruit to investigate how it looks and feels. This procedure is similar to what scientists have to do before they can use the information contained in this DNA.
