Strawberry DNA Extraction Experiment

This student worksheet guides students through the Strawberry DNA Extraction experiment. In this lab, students will observe the physical properties of DNA. Students will break open strawberry cells, prepare a filtered extract containing strawberry DNA, and separate out molecules of DNA in a test tube. What does DNA look like in a test tube? What properties can be observed with the unaided eye? Instructional materials include background, lab procedures, questions, and extra credit challenge.
