My entry for Annie's smiles this week comes from the Festival of Life which was held at work, where Alex was able to extract DNA from strawberries among other things. Smashing the strawberries was great,
but mixing them with soapy, salty water to break open the cells and then filter the contents was even better.
Best of all was watching the layer of ethanol on top reveal the strands of DNA and being allowed to keep them..it made his day.
I was going to end my blog post there, but I had to laugh this morning when I had left the room to do some chores and came back in to find a 'dead body' on the floor and a crime scene investigation in progress...
this was the final crime scene. Can you see the motive (gems), the murder weapon (gun complete with finger prints), the boot print of the murderer, and the blood as well as the outlined body? I was both impressed and amused by the end result. I hope Alex's antics this week made you smile. Have great weekend everyone.
