Examining capsules to observe if their DNA was synthesized, sophomores Jameson Mullaney and Alex Spangler react to their results. Honors biology students combined their saliva with dish soap in order to extract their DNA. “We kind of messed up our experiment; we accidentally put too much soap, so it didn’t really work,” Spangler said. “We were kind of upset with ourselves, but were able to laugh it off. It was a really fun experiment.”
