Every living thing contains DNA, but humans are not able to see it with an unaided eye. We conducted this experiment to extract DNA from peas and see which material affects the amounts the most. We would leave the DNA mixture for 72 hours, in a dark area and check to see the difference from when the experiment was conducted 72 hours earlier. Then we would compare each trial and see which one showed increased amount of DNA, decreased amount of DNA or stagnant amount of DNA.
