Book Session

Learn about DNA and how to extract and precipitate your own.

Learners will harvest their own cheek cells and find out about the processes of lysis and cleaning DNA using protease. They will then add a salt mixture and isopropanol alcohol to preserve their DNA in a tube they can take away.

This practical workshop explores the function of DNA inside our body, its structure, and who discovered its shape.

(Price includes £4.50 Thinktank entry charge.)
