The DNA Doc

Dr Melita Irving will be extracting DNA live! It might be tricky so she will have a little help from her friend, Lucy McKay, CEO at Medics4RareDiseases who will also be probing her with questions about genetics sent in by our viewers – what could possibly go wrong?!

Don’t worry, there won’t be any blood and gore around, just a few juicy strawberries and some washing up liquid! Please join us – it will be fun and informative (and very messy!).

Get your ingredients ready

You will need: 3-4 ripe strawberries, 120 ml water, 1 cocktail stick, 1 zip lock bag, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons washing up liquid, Coffee filter, Rubbing alcohol and 2 glass containers.
