Year 7 Have Some Fun in Science!

Years 7 and 8 have been having some end of term fun in the science lab this week.

They have been extracting DNA from a kiwi fruit. DNA extraction and isolation is a process of purification of DNA from samples using a combination of physical and chemical methods. The first isolation of DNA was done in 1869 by Friedrich Miescher. Currently it is a routine procedure in molecular biology or forensic analyses.
