Precipitate DNA From Solution and Permanently Preserve It
- Students create DNA necklaces
- Created and tested by teachers
- Includes an experiment guide
Using the kit materials, students extract DNA from cheek cells and precipitate it from solution. Once DNA is collected and examined, it can be transferred into a "Gene Tube" which can be stored for future study or strung as a pendant on a wearable necklace.
