Check out this cool DNA extraction using everyday materials! Although I am no where near a
genetic scientist, this might be something I can try… (So I can find out which dog left their pee
mark on my walls…)
DNA extraction and separation by agarose gel electrophoresis is a simple and exciting process that anyone can perform. However, the high cost of specialized equipment and chemicals often hinder such an experiment from being carried by members of the high school community. Here, we describe a cost effective way of extracting and electrophoresing DNA under a prescribed MacGyver limitation – that is using only materials available from a grocery store or shopping mall.
