Crusaders and the Pea



Cassandra Crawford, a research assistant at The Broad Institute in Cambridge, Mass., visited Crusaders at Park View Middle School this week to talk about her job in the lab and to explain the process of DNA sequencing. After showing slides of her lab and describing some basic scientific principles of DNA and RNA, Cassandra led an experiment to extract plant DNA from dried peas. Thanks to Kayleigh Lagasse, College Crusade Advisor at Park View, for inviting her friend Cassandra to visit and for taking photos of Crusaders participating in the extraction process!
