Activity! Extracting the Code of Life. –Lab handout can be found in the activities folder. –http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/labs/ext raction/howto/ (More Information)http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/labs/ext raction/howto/ The Instructions For Life
Procedure: 1) One class member measures out 100ml of split peas and add to blender. 2) Add 1ml of table salt to blender. 3) Add 200 ml of cold water. 4) Cover and blend on high for 15-20 seconds. 5) Pour contents through strainer into another container (plastic cup). 6) Add 30 ml of liquid detergent and mix in the container. 7) Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes (clean up area during this time). 8) Pour the mixture into test tubes equally. 9) Add a pinch of enzymes to each container. 10) “Gently” very gently swirl for 1 minute. 11) Tilt your test tube and slowly pour rubbing alcohol (70-95% isopropyl or ethyl alcohol) into the tube down the side so that it forms a layer on top of the pea mixture. Pour until you have about the same amount of alcohol in the tube as pea mixture. 12) DNA will rise into the alcohol layer from the pea layer. You can use a wooden stick (cotton swab) or other hook to draw the DNA into the alcohol. http://www.biologyjunction.com/extracting_dna.htm
Important Note: Most DNA is found in the nucleus. Small amounts of DNA are found in the mitochondria organelle (mtDNA) –Learn more abaout mtDNA at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitochondrial_DNAhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitochondrial_DNA

Watson and Crick also found that if they paired Thymine with Adenine and Guanine with Cytosine DNA would look uniform.
Watson and Crick were able to figure out that one strand went up and one went down. Watson and Crick also found that if they paired Thymine with Adenine and Guanine with Cytosine DNA would look uniform.

Activity Reading. Who discovered DNA? –Please complete 3 of the 5 questions on the last page.
Please answer 3 of the 5 questions below from the difficult reading. –1.) Name four people in this article and how they contributed to the discovery of DNA’s structure? –2.) What role did Maurice Wilkins play in the discovery of DNA’s structure? –3.) What two things in DNA’s structure did Watson and Crick figure out that Rosalind Franklin missed? –4.) Describe the relationship between of Rosalind Franklin to Watson, Crick, and Wilkins? –5.) How does getting things done first / taking risks relate to this article? –6.) Find three words that you did not know from the reading and use a dictionary / resource to define them? –7.) Create a comic book sequence between Rosalind Franklin, Maurice Wilkins, James Watson, and Francis Crick from something discussed in the article.
In 1962, Watson, Crick, and Wilkins won the Nobel Prize for physiology/medicine, –Franklin had died of Ovarian Cancer. –The cancer that killed her may have been caused by working with X-Rays.
