Title: Factors That Cause Degradation in Salmon Fish (Oncorhynchus) DNA
Grade level: High School - Grades 10-12
Academic Level: Advanced
Project Type: Experimental
Affiliation: Selah Junior High School
Description: Solution samples of DNA extracted from salmon testes were exposed to the oscillating polarity of a magnetic stirrer. Then a spectrophotometer was used to analyze the absorbency of the DNA fragments to find the percentage of DNA remaining in the solution.
