  • Independence High biology students successfully isolated DNA from strawberries!  I.H.S. students used laboratory techniques to extract DNA from strawberries. After isolating thousands to millions of DNA strands in test tubes (white strands), students were better able to analyze how scientists can detect genetic disorders, produce DNA fingerprints of individuals, and create genetically engineered organisms, which can be beneficial to both biotechnology and forensic science. Students were amazed to observe the DNA strands with the naked eye.  Mrs. Boast (I.H.S., Teacher of the Year ’13-14) was overall impressed with students’ motivation, techniques and lab reports. I.H.S. students are on their way to becoming future scientists! Louisiana Strawberry Strawberry DNA Strawberry DNA Jacaleb Flott working hard Jordan Temple and Zullily Delacruz Darryl Dryer analyzing Joseph Havis Karnesha Milton
