The Secrets of Plant DNA

Modern technology has vastly expanded our understanding of plant DNA-how it is structured, how it functions, and how it evolved. In this hands-on workshop, you'll perform basic DNA extraction under the guidance of Dr. Damon Little, NYBG's Associate Curator of Bioinformatics. He'll share how his DNA analyses of the plant material found in over-the-counter herbal supplements show that these products are mislabeled at an astonishing rate.
