Ally Solowicz Dr. Sanstad Biology 101 22 July 2016 Lab 10 Abstract DNA extraction is a process of purification of DNA from sample using a combination of physical and chemical methods. The first isolation of DNA was done in 1869 by Friedrich Miescher. Currently it’s a routine procedure in molecular biology or forensic analysis. The steps for DNA extraction that I followed in the simulated lab is to collect cheek cells, burst cells open to release DNA, separate DNA from proteins and debris and isolate concentrated DNA. Introduction DNA extraction is used in forensic analysis and chemical and biological analysis. It helps to break cells open to expose DNA within the cells. There are many steps to DNA extraction and takes a long time to process with the centrifuge. Materials and Methods The materials needed for the experiment were warm water bath micro centrifuge buccal swab micropipettes sample tubes, centrifuges. First I had to drag the swab

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
