Seeing Results at Echinacea East

Hi everyone!

It’s been a fun and productive week at the College of Wooster and we’re already starting to see the products of our hard work!

Avery, Mia, and Miyauna spent the day continuing DNA extractions, this time using fresh samples in an attempt to determine if there is a difference between extracting DNA from fresh or dried leaves.

Jennifer, Avery, and I continued planting seeds and hoping they’ll grow big and tall!

At the end of the day, we had a pleasant surprise when we successfully extracted DNA from the fresh leaf samples with much more ease than the dried samples!

Not only did we find some amazing results with the DNA extraction, but our seeds are starting to sprout their first leaves! You go little guys!

After such an amazing week, I can’t wait to see what the next one holds!

Until next week,
