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
                   paper towel
                  3ml alcohol
what can i do with this?<br>what is it for?<br>just fun and science?
if i drink this will i die or become strawberry man?<br>
so can i ike mix this with my dna and become a strawberry man super mutant thing :)
You are absolutely correct....plants have both DNA&nbsp;and RNA.&nbsp; I stand corrected.&nbsp; I&nbsp;must have thought I learned that in 8th grade or something.<br /> <br /> Carry on.<br />
Whoa weird! I've done this recently in Biology.<br />
Wouldn't that be RNA since it is a plant?<br />
Why would it be RNA?&nbsp; DNA exists in all living things. I'm <em>positive</em> its DNA<br />
oh well im not perfect an i think dna just sounds cool :)
<p><b>Ill let wikipedia answer that but for a quick answere RNA is not strictly plants<br /> Ribonucleic acid</b> (<b>RNA</b>) is a biologically important type of molecule that consists of a long chain of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucleotide" rel="nofollow" title="Nucleotide">nucleotide</a> units. Each nucleotide consists of a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucleobase" rel="nofollow" title="Nucleobase">nitrogenous base</a>, a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ribose" rel="nofollow" title="Ribose">ribose</a> sugar, and a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phosphate" rel="nofollow" title="Phosphate">phosphate</a>. RNA is very similar to <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA" rel="nofollow" title="DNA">DNA</a>, but differs in a few important structural details: in the cell, RNA is usually single-stranded, while DNA is usually double-stranded; RNA nucleotides contain ribose while DNA contains <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deoxyribose" rel="nofollow" title="Deoxyribose">deoxyribose</a> (a type of ribose that lacks one oxygen atom); and RNA has the base <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uracil" rel="nofollow" title="Uracil">uracil</a> rather than <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thymine" rel="nofollow" title="Thymine">thymine</a> that is present in DNA.</p> <p>RNA is <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcription_%28genetics%29" rel="nofollow" title="Transcription (genetics)">transcribed</a> from DNA by <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enzyme" rel="nofollow" title="Enzyme">enzymes</a> called <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RNA_polymerase" rel="nofollow" title="RNA polymerase">RNA polymerases</a> and is generally further processed by other enzymes. RNA is central to <a class="mw-redirect" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protein_synthesis" rel="nofollow" title="Protein synthesis">protein synthesis</a>. Here, a type of RNA called <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messenger_RNA" rel="nofollow" title="Messenger RNA">messenger RNA</a> carries information from DNA to structures called <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ribosome" rel="nofollow" title="Ribosome">ribosomes</a>. These ribosomes are made from proteins and ribosomal RNAs, which come together to form a molecular machine that can read messenger RNAs and <a class="mw-redirect" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Translation_%28biology%29" rel="nofollow" title="Translation (biology)">translate</a> the information they carry into proteins. There are many RNAs with other roles &ndash; in particular <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regulation_of_gene_expression" rel="nofollow" title="Regulation of gene expression">regulating</a> which <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gene" rel="nofollow" title="Gene">genes</a> are expressed, but also as the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genome" rel="nofollow" title="Genome">genomes</a> of most <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virus" rel="nofollow" title="Virus">viruses</a>.</p>
opps i wrote you are NOT a dna extractor instead of you are NOW a dna extractor sorry people !!
