Genomic DNA Extraction - Frozen Tissue (Feb/11/2008 )


is it possible to isolate genomic DNA from frozen tissue?





That's usually the case.


Some people have even isolated genomic DNA from paraffin sections of human tissue. Its supposed to be difficult.

So from frozen tissue, its should be possible.


we have frozen plant tissue at -80 °C for at least six months and the DNA extraction presents no problem at all.


most certainly.
