THE WORLDS LONGEST BIOLOGY LESSON
-FROM “I HELPED ACHIEVE A GUINNESS RECORD”
On 14th October 2017, I went to Anna university to attend the world’s longest biology lesson on the topic,”From Cell to DNA Spooling.”
The program started at around 9 am, with Dr. Harsh Vardhan, blessing us to do well. Then we started the lesson with the basic explanation and classification of cells. After this, we moved on to microorganisms- both as a friend and a foe.
The lesson moved on to the introduction of genetics at a base level, and finished with an DNA pooling experiment with the use of papaya extract and chilled ethanol.
Finally the results were announced, and we had broke the record.
I am extremely thankful for being able to participate in the event, as it allowed me to gain a lot of information.
