The Year 11.5 students are starting their Year 12 courses this week.

In Biology class the girls are looking at the structure and function of DNA. Every living organism has DNA, which controls the function of their cells. The girls are conducting an experiment to break apart the cells of strawberries and extract the long thin filaments of DNA from the nucleus of their cells.

They will not be able to see the molecular structure of the DNA molecule, as it is too small to observe even with a microscope, but they will be able to observe the highly condensed form of DNA known as chromatin.
