|Location:||SUNY Canton: Cook 213|
|Classes:||1 Session 2.0 hours|
|Dates:||Wed 1:00 PM 05/08|
The information needed to make every living thing is encoded within strands of DNA. In this course we will investigate the properties of DNA and how information is stored within the molecule. Additionally, we will extract DNA from strawberries and other food items using a method that can be performed in a kitchen with common household items – thus alowing the participants to share extraction of DNA with their own friends and family in their own homes.
