Manufacturing of Carbonated WaterLee Yew ChernB1400461Running head: MANUFACTURING OF CARBONATED WATER 1MANUFACTURING OF CARBONATED WA TER 9HELP UniversityExtraction of DNA from Plant TissuesObjectivesTo demonstrate extraction of DNA and to study the characteristics of plant DNA.IntroductionDeoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) is a genetic material that carries biological data for the formation and function of living things. Within the plant species, the DNA molecule houses structures of nucleus, mitochondria and chloroplasts; which the chloroplasts makes plant DNA unique from animal DNA. In a simple DNA molecule, four nucleotides can be found. For each nucleotide it houses five-carbon sugar (deoxyribose), phosphate and one of four nitrogenous bases; which either one could be adenine (A) and guanine (G) the double-ringed purines or thymine (T) and cytosine (C) the single-ringed pyrimidines, as explained by (International Baccalaureate Biology, 2013).The hypothesis in the experiment is that the shampoo will be able to break through the phospholipid bilayer of the strawberry plant cell and DNA will be precipitated when ethanol is added.Materials
1. 100ml Beaker

5. Strawberry

9. Blender

2. Hair shampoo

6. Scalpel

10. Filter

3. Glass rod

7. Ice water bath

11. Ethanol

4. Stopwatch

8. Hot water bath

12. Trypsin

Method3g of salt, 90ml of distilled water and 10ml of hair shampoo were added together in the 100ml beaker while stirring.Chopped strawberries were adding into mixture after it is stirred thoroughly.Beaker of mixture was given an exact 15 minutes of 60ºC water bath.After 15 minutes of hot water bath, beaker of mixture was given an ice water bath.Stirring of the mixture was until temperature of the beaker and mixture cooled down.Mixture was filled into a blender to blender everything thoroughly (Figure 1.1).The blended mixture was poured into a beaker passing through a filter (Figure 1.2).2 drops of trypsin was added to filtrate for every 10 ml.Total drops of trypsin were 12 drops and total amount of filtrate was 60ml.Filtrate and trypsin were mixed well with a glass rod.Ice cold ethanol was slowly poured through the slide of the beaker into the mixture of filtrate and trypsin, forming a layer of ethanol.ResultsBelow here are the observations taken during the experimenting of plant DNA extraction.VARYING DEFINITIONS OF ONLINE COMMUNICATIONThe mixture before strawberries were added (Figure 1.3).The color of the mixture was bright yellow. A lot of bubbles were created due to the presence of shampoo.The mixture after strawberries were added (Figure 1.4).The color of the mixture became reddish pink and cloudy. Bubbles are still present.The blending of the mixture in a blender and filtering of it (Figure 1.5)Significant amount of bubbles amassed due to the blender's quick blending speed. When filtering the blended mixture, lot of bubbles were left on the filter and the finer mixtures became the filtrate which contains DNA...

Extraction of nitrogen compounds from SRGO and SRGO/LGO mixtures towards ULSD production by acetone/water mixtures

2520 words - 11 pages A B S T R A C T Solvent extraction of the nitrogen compounds present in straight run gas oil (SRGO) and straight run gas oil/light cycle oil mixtures (SRGO/LCO) were studied using acetone and acetone/water mixtures. In the batch experiments, LCO content in SRGO varied from 0 to 15 %, water in acetone went from 0 to 15 % and the solvent/feed ratio changed from 1 to 3. The effect of these variables on the nitrogen removal and gain or loss of

1151 words - 5 pages adenine always pairs with thymine and guanine with cytosine. Since Miescher’s discovery many advances have been made in DNA such as defining its structure, finding out what DNA is made out of and the art of DNA extraction. Friedrich Miescher was a Swiss physician and the first scientist to isolate DNA in 1869 (Tan). “Using arduous and complicated procedures, Miescher proved that the new substance did indeed come from cell nuclei, and that is was a

2459 words - 10 pages successful extraction of the GAPDH gene. Once the DNA is extracted, Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) will be conducted. This procedure consists of repeated cycles of heating and cooling to make a copy of a specific region of the DNA from the plant. During the PCR process, the temperature is raised which causes the DNA to denature into two strands. Once the temperature is lowered, DNA primers bind to the complementary DNA sequence. After 30 cycles of

The first step was to add 1 mL of a premade 8% sodium chloride (salt) solution to a large test tube. One mL is approximately 20 drops from a pipette. The salt solution is very important because it will go into the DNA and destroy the histones that the DNA is wrapped around (Rice, George). It will also
