can we extract DNA from snap freeze tissue - (Aug/21/2012 )

Dear all,

Can we still able to extract DNA from snap freeze tissues (lungs, pancreas) of mice {snap freeze was done by using pentane in liquid nitrogen}?
May i know the best conventional method to extract DNA from these frozen tissues?
Thank you very much



Yes you can.

Any one of the conventional methods will work well, it all depends on the purity you require. For most applications a standard phenol-chlorofom extraction is good.
