At the conclusion of the experimental trials, I found that my hypothesis was correct. I had predicted that Ajax dishwashing liquid would produce the most extractable DNA. The measured results showed that Ajax produced almost two times more DNA than Fructis Shampoo and had the most consistent results for each trial. The thirty separate trials went smoothly and I had no problems

Questions for Further Research

.An interesting future experiment might involve changing the stage of ripeness, using different temperatures, or levels of sun exposure. Another study could involve the use of different types of fruits and vegetables. This experiment taught me that every human and plant cell contains DNA.
