Introduction: How to Extract DNA From a Strawberry
Most organisms only have 2 copies of DNA, but a strawberry has 8, so that makes it way easier to get. Enough learning lets blow somethin' up! kidding, lol
Step 1: Meterials
Materials: half a strawberry
even 10ml solution of salt,detergent, and water
Step 2: Step 1
Put the strawberry half in a bag and seal the bag. Smush the strawberrt until it is mostly smooth. Slowly pour in the 10ml solution of salt, water, and detergent.

Remove the paper towel. Now you have pure strwberry solution.
Step 7: Step 6
Pour the juice into a beaker and slowly pour in 3ml of alcohol.
Step 8: Step 7
Stir skewer and extract DNA. Congratulations you are not a pro DNA extracter
