National DNA Day Celebration

This free event offered members of the public the chance to get their hands dirty in a DIY science activity. Visitors extracted DNA from strawberries in our lab, using household materials like overproof rum and pineapple juice, and learned about how genome science and bioart come together at the Coalesce Center for Biological Art. Stay tuned for upcoming events such as this by following GEM on twitter and Facebook @UBGEMCOE.
