Work alongside Imperial College London researchers to extract a strawberry's DNA, and take it home as a souvenir!

We've prepared the lab, now we need you to join us to complete this experiment, extracting DNA from fruit. Scientists from Imperial College London will guide you step-by-step, and share their remarkable research into DNA - the material inside all living things that carries the instructions for growing and living.
