National DNA Day: Bananas, DNA and you

In honor of National DNA Day on April 25th, Ask a Biologist’s Dr. Biology and CEM’s Melissa Wilson Sayres have created a video to show viewers how to extract and view the DNA in bananas in just a few easy steps! You can find detailed written instructions here, on the Ask a Biologist website.

DNA Day commemorates the completion of the Human Genome Project in April 2003, and the discovery of DNA's double helix in 1953.
