Junior scientist Phoebe shows us how to use household ingredients to extract the DNA from fruits and vegetables. DNA is a string-like chain of nucleotides that stores genetic instructions on the development, functioning and reproduction of all living things, and some viruses. To follow this experiment at home or school, you will need a few fruits and vegetables, plastic cups, salt, detergent, coffee filters, toothpicks, a blender, methylated spirits, a sieve, a knife and a chopping board.
