Step into Tacoma's cutting edge biotech labs and learn how to extract your own DNA. Using cells from your cheek, we will break open the cells by creating large (relatively speaking, of course) openings in its membrane causing your DNA to spill out of them. This process is called lysing, and is a precursor to much of biological engineering. Then we will remove excess proteins from the mixture and force the strands of DNA to stick to each other. Finally, we will take the now easily visible DNA material and transfer it into a clear capsule which will serve as our necklace's pendant. Using materials from our lab, you will be able to execute this entire process yourself with only guidance and explanation from our scientists. Once completed, its yours to take home! Then, take a tour of the incubator and meet the team. Talk with some of the Pacific Northwest's leading biotech innovators about their projects, and students training to become the innovators of tomorrow. Learn how RAIN is making an impact on our community, and leave with a souvenir necklace containing your own DNA.
Il tuo host
One of RAIN's many volunteer-turned-employees, I'm passionate about creating sustainable industries and STEM jobs for Tacoma. Between new ways to detect environmental toxins, classify health, or protect astronauts, the scientific research done here has the potential to change the world. A Physics and Math graduate from the nearby University of Puget Sound (go Loggers), my STEM education background and experience starting and running a virtual tutoring company brought me to RAIN where I engage business relationships and community outreach.
