Guidelines for collecting starting materials for Ultrapure and HMW DNA Extractions

All materials, regardless of organism, should be freshly-collected, immediately snap frozen in liquid nitrogen (or a dry ice ethanol bath), and stored at -80C until shipped on dry ice. For specific organisms, see details below. Plants: We have the best results starting with very young leaf/seedling tissue that has been grown in the dark for […]
