Extracting DNA from strawberries and eating it

This video is a bit different and more on the biochemistry side. During my Biochemistry degree, this was one prep that always amazed me.

I'll be extracting DNA from strawberries and then giving it a taste to see what it's like. Because I plan to eat it, I only use chemicals that are "food safe".

On a side note, it feels like I have been neglecting synthesis, so the next few videos are going to just synth projects only!

I forgot to mention in the video why the DNA precipitates. The DNA is not soluble in isopropanol, but it is soluble in water. The isopropanol is miscible with water, so as more is added, the solubility of DNA decreases. If enough is added, the DNA will fall out of solution.

i have a question 1. Why did you have to mash the strawberries? 2. What was the purpose of the salt in the DNA extracting solution? 3. What was the purpose of the soap in the DNA extracting solution?

4:55 another reason to use strawberries over peas or chicken liver is that strawberries are octuploid meaning that they have 8 copies of their 7 chromosomes for 56 chromosomes in a cell. While chickens do have a diploid genome of 2 copies of 39 chromosomes for a total of 76, most of these chromosomes are microchromosomes like other avians. And peas have a diploid number of chromosomes of 14.

@Alesha Washington But then again, telling by your PFP and how you said that you are a "professional idiot" in your channel description, I shouldn't be conversing with you because all I will get is a shitty argument about strawberry DNA and semen, which MAY I REMIND YOU that this all started from a joke.
NEXUS 64 Vor 3 Tage
@Alesha Washington semen is salty, semen, infact, has a reputation for being salty! As for the hard part, no... But you have to remember that it started out slimy and then he left it out to dry up and become hard, so in other words, it wasn't always hard.
Alesha Washington
@NEXUS 64 Bruh semen isn't salty, hard or course 😅 wtf unhealthy semen you been tasting
NEXUS 64 Vor 3 Tage
@Alesha Washington well Semen does have our DNA and is used to make more of us... And also the way he described the taste of and texture of that stuff kind of matched the taste of and texture of semen.
