A friend and I are doing a project for our Honors Bio class. Using a low-
tech prep, we extracted DNA from 10 different fruits and vegetables. When
we weighed the amounts of DNA, the results were very different, and when
we did gel electrophoresis, there was no pattern between the ones that
yielded the most and the ones that had the best DNA. We were wondering
why this may be.
