Have you ever wanted your own army of nightmarish strawberry monsters, ready and willing to carry out your terrible whims and crush any who would dare oppose you? Of course you have! You’re only human, after all! If there’s one thing that science fiction novels and comic books have taught us over the years, though, it’s that the first step to anyone’s dream of a horrible mutant army is the extraction of DNA from the innocent organisms you want to breed into horrible mutants. Now, the Internet has taken all of the mystery right out of that all important first step, and thanks to the following handy video, you can extract DNA from a strawberry in your kitchen using things you (mostly) already have around the house. Just, when you do conquer the world, please, remember us fondly. We don’t ask much. Maybe one of the smaller continents. You know. If you’re not using it.
- For the sad person in your life, we have inhalable strawberry shortcake
- Don’t try to add the resulting strawberry juice to your chocolates
- Extracting DNA is definitely the easy part — tweaking it is much, much harder
