DNA Extraction Experiment
By: Chris Rotter
What the difference between pea DNA and Banana DNA?
I think that the DNA will have a different color and the amount will be different. I think it won't look like the thread looking DNA extracted from the peas instead it will look thicker and grayish not white. Since bananas are not veggies but a fruit that will be what effects the DNA or there would be no difference between fruits and veggies.
- Gather Equipment
- Blend organism & peas making sure to us same amount of water and salt
- Strain and place in cups
- Add a few drops of soap to each blend
- Put mixture in test tubes
- Add enzyme
- Add alcohol slowly
- Record and compare data
- Take picture of end results (I forgot to do)
Salt- 1 pinch
Soap- 3 drops
Peas- Quite a bit of DNA whitish
Bananas- very little DNA grayish color
Bananas' DNA is different than pea DNA in color and in amount.
