DNA Extraction from wheat germ Protocol Salk Institute Mobile Lab Step #1 Obtain a numbered 50 ml conical vial with 10 ml of water.

Write your number here:________ Salk Institute Mobile Lab Step #2 To the tube with 10 ml water add 1g (1 pinch) of raw wheat germ. The wheat germ should settle to fill 1/2 the

cone Salk Institute Mobile Lab Step #3 Cap the tube and vigorously shake to mix for about 30 seconds. What do you think the shaking is

doing to the wheat cells? Salk Institute Mobile Lab After shaking - let the cell walls settle to the bottom Whats in the cloudy solution? Where is the DNA

at this point? Salk Institute Mobile Lab Step #4 Using a transfer pipet add 3 ml of 25% dish soap to the tube with water and wheat germ. Salk Institute Mobile Lab

Steps #5-6 Cap the tube and slowly invert several times to mix (DO NOT SHAKE). Loosen the cap slightly before placing tube in the hot water bath. Heat at 65C for 5

minutes. Salk Institute Mobile Lab What do you think the soap will do? How will the hot water bath help? Bonus question: Why does washing your hands with soap and hot water kill bacteria on your skin? Salk Institute Mobile Lab

Step #7 While the tubes are heating label a 1.7 ml eppendorf tube with your initials. Carefully open the epi tube and place it into the rack Salk Institute Mobile Lab

Steps #8-9 Before removing your tube from the 65C water fill a transfer pipet with 3ml of alcohol. Bring the 50 ml conical tube back to your table and as soon as possible add the 3ml of alcohol to the tube.

Salk Institute Mobile Lab Step #10 Watch the DNA rise out of the green soap layer and into the alcohol layer. What color is DNA?? What color do you think YOUR DNA is? Why?

Salk Institute Mobile Lab Step #11 After waiting a few moments to allow the DNA to precipitate remove the DNA using an inoculation loop and place in your eppendorf tube. Try to avoid any wheat germ

debris that is present. Salk Institute Mobile Lab Step #11 cont. Spinning the loop will help get the DNA off Make sure to close the epi tube securely (you should hear it click)

Salk Institute Mobile Lab Congratulations! You have just done something that scientists do everyday in the lab! Your DNA will last you for years its very stable when stored in isopropanol SOME RULES: Your DNA tube should be put away during school - other teachers will

confiscate it if you disturb their class! You must show your parents at home your DNA and tell them what you learned! Salk Institute Mobile Lab Review: We extracted DNA from wheat germ And discovered that the color of DNA is

WHITE! No matter what organism it comes from, DNA in a tube looks the same! Salk Institute Mobile Lab We ALL have white DNA!! Salk Institute Mobile Lab
