Patrons will be invited to vigorously rinse their oral cavity with a sterile solution to dislodge epithelial cells for 30 seconds and then expectorate back into a sterile 50 ml tube. Afterwards a series of solutions will be added one at a time with gentle mixing. Once the patron's epithelial cells are lysed, the released DNA will then be further isolated by precipitation and finally placed into a jewelry quality glass container. The final product will be a glass jewelry quality DNA necklace.
