A plan to release our DNA molecules

Our body consists of numerous cells. In each cell, there is a bubble and in each bubble resides a molecule, called DNA. There are many proteins around the bubble, who want to destroy the DNA molecule. Can we release the DNA and help it to survive? Yes, we can! We have many useful tools in our disposal, but we should use each tool at the right moment. An isotonic drink, a lysis buffer, a drop of proteinase K, 5 drops of NaCL and ethanol are our tools. Let’s plan our experiment!
