Special sponsor BioRad has donated Genes in a Bottle Amulets for the first 250 guests! A BioRad Ambassador will be at SAMFA working with families to create Genes in a Bottle. Genes in a Bottle DNA Extraction experiment makes biology personal by introducing students to molecular biology with their own DNA! Participants will use real laboratory procedures to extract their own DNA from their cheek cells and then precipitate and bottle it in a keepsake amulet. The permanent keepsake of their DNA will remind them of their interaction with a real scientist.

Family Days are funded in part by Texas Commission of Arts, Sterling-Turner Foundation, H-E-B, Target Foundation, Ethicon, San Angelo Cultural Affairs Council and the San Angelo Area Foundation
