?apologia biology mod. 7 DNA extraction experiment

Recommended Posts

WE are in module 7 and will be doing the DNA extration with the split peas. I am just wondering as towhat type of split peas to use. Are frozen peas acceptable? Canned peas? Dried, splited peas? Just not sure what to use and would love some advice.

That's the site I used also, cbollin. :)


I also put the alcohol in the fridge to get it really cold. I used 91% isopropyl alcohol as I read somewhere that a higher percentage would work better, and that it would also do better if the alcohol was cold.


We had instant results,





but this is what it looked like about 20 - 30 minutes later.
