Capture Your Essence!
Bottle your DNA! Whether it’s being cloned, sequenced, fingerprinted, mapped, or genetically engineered, DNA has become an everyday topic in the media and the classroom. Introduce your students to the molecular framework of biology — with their own DNA! How do scientists separate pure DNA from cells composed mainly of lipids,proteins, carbohydrates, and salts? Membranes are first ruptured with detergents to release DNA into a solution; then proteins and other organic molecules are digested and separated while retaining intact DNA. The DNA is finally collected by precipitation in a form that can be manipulated as desired. With this simple lab activity, students gain practical knowledge by conducting a real-worldprocedure that is used to extract DNA from many different organisms for a variety of applications. Your students will extract genomic DNA from their own cheek cells and watch it precipitate from solution as floating white strands. The DNA strands are then easily collected and transferred to a glass vial, and the vial is fashioned into a necklace! Seeing is believing. For students learning aboutthe molecular framework of biology for the first time, DNA is abstract and intangible. This procedure makes the invisible visible — seeing their own DNA makes it real and helps students comprehend this previously invisible substance of life. Learning opportunities for all levels of instruction. This activity is designed for any classroom environment and requires no specialized equipment orstains. For secondary and college level instruction, lessons on DNA structure and function, cell structure, and enzyme function can be introduced or reinforced with this laboratory activity. For middle school students, it’s a perfect introduction to the exciting world of DNA science. We welcome your comments and suggestions. Have fun!
