Print Info

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.

Kristine Potter is an adjunct professor of Biology at SUNY Canton. She received her Ph. D. from The University at Buffalo, where she studied the regulation of gene expression in bacteria. Kristine teaches introductory level Biology and Chemistry labs, as well as Anatomy and Physiology labs, and her personal favorite online course: The Genome.
