At 16:30 - DNA extraction from strawberries

Presented by: Marco Martinelli alias @marcoilgiallino science communicator and influencer with over 170,000 followers on TikTok

Age: 5-13

ExperimentWhat do all living things have in common? The DNA!
Plants have a particular characteristic: while humans have two copies of DNA in each cell (one inherited from the father and the other from the mother), many plants have a greater number of these copies. The strawberry, for example, has 8 copies of DNA. During this experience we will extract DNA from strawberries and understand why plants have increased the amount of DNA inside them. We will discover that nature is amazing and always comes out of the box!

Language: Italian

IngredientsFresh strawberries, a plastic bag (such as bags used for storing food in the fridge), dish soap, salt, water, a narrow mesh strainer for filtering, food ethanol (or even the pink one used for cleansing) that has to be put in the freezer to cool at least 2 hours before the lab, a glass and eyebrow tweezers (or, alternatively, a fork).
