Jane: Yep, with a blender.
She told me how it worked and it sounded extremely cool and I asked for the directions. She found the experiment written up here, at the University of Utah’s Genetic Science Learning Center (but warned me, as I shall now warn you, that the background color is an assault on the eyes).
What you need:
A small glass
A long toothpick or wooden stick
A DNA source (split peas)
Contact lens solution
A measuring container
A test tube (optional)
