Picture this: You're snowed in, morale is low, and everyone is weeping because no one has done any quality science experiments using only food and ordinary household objects for hours now. The good news is that if you happen to have fresh strawberries, pineapple juice, and a bottle of Bacardi 151, everybody's about to start calling you Mr. Wizard. Here's Oliver Medvedik of Genspace with step-by-step instructions on how to make a wispy cloud of strawberry DNA rise out of fruit mash and into a pool of Bacardi 151 like a genomic ghost. It turns out that commercial strawberries have 56 chromosomes, so that's a lot of nucleotides, and ... seriously, it's amazing; just watch. You can drink the results, too.
