    As a middle school student, you must have some idea about DNA. Basically the abbreviation DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid and it contains genetic instructions that play an important part in the development and functioning of every living organism. Apart from the biological perspective, DNA holds remarkable significance in certain crime investigations. Many crimes such as unsolved murders are often detected with the help of DNA which is extracted from the blood or any body organ. If there is a Science project coming your way, then extracting DNA experiment can prove to be a good idea. This involves completely blending the spinach, which breaks down to its simplest cellular structure. Adding soap to the blended spinach helps further access the DNA, while alcohol makes the strands hold onto each other. Hence, to perform this experiment, make sure you have the following; Things Required: - ½ cup of Fresh Spinach - Blender - Strainer - Stop watch or timer - Rubbing Alcohol - 1 cup cold water - ¼ teaspoon salt - 2 tablespoons dish washing soap - Meat tenderizer (one pinch) - Measuring glass http://www.stepbystep.com/how-to-extract-dna-from-spinach-8245/
