What is needed to read the DNA?

  1. I want to know what material is needed if I want to extract the DNA of a plant and show it in a computer.

    You can't do it directly without using a DNA sequencer and some software to put the snippets together.


    If the goal is to show it on a computer then someone may have already sequenced it for you and it might be available online.
  4. Thanks for the information. Now I've a little bit more data for searching it. :thumbs:
  5. Hunt around at www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

    Tons of databases there. There is a learning curve involved when trying to find and then analyze the data contained, but it isn't too difficult.
