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. Tilt bag back and forth until strawberry innards and solution are mixed well. Mix them carefully so you don't get any bubbles. Let it sit so the solution can dissolve cellular membrane.
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 !!
