Picture of 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
                  cup
                   paper towel
                   beaker
                  3ml alcohol
                   cup

if i drink this will i die or become strawberry man?
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 and RNA.  I stand corrected.  I must have thought I learned that in 8th grade or something.

Carry on.

Whoa weird! I've done this recently in Biology.

Wouldn't that be RNA since it is a plant?
Why would it be RNA?  DNA exists in all living things. I'm positive its DNA

Ill let wikipedia answer that but for a quick answere RNA is not strictly plants
Ribonucleic acid
(RNA) is a biologically important type of molecule that consists of a long chain of nucleotide units. Each nucleotide consists of a nitrogenous base, a ribose sugar, and a phosphate. RNA is very similar to DNA, 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 deoxyribose (a type of ribose that lacks one oxygen atom); and RNA has the base uracil rather than thymine that is present in DNA.

RNA is transcribed from DNA by enzymes called RNA polymerases and is generally further processed by other enzymes. RNA is central to protein synthesis. Here, a type of RNA called messenger RNA carries information from DNA to structures called ribosomes. These ribosomes are made from proteins and ribosomal RNAs, which come together to form a molecular machine that can read messenger RNAs and translate the information they carry into proteins. There are many RNAs with other roles – in particular regulating which genes are expressed, but also as the genomes of most viruses.

opps i wrote you are NOT a dna extractor instead of you are NOW a dna extractor sorry people !!
