how to amplify a fungus which is in the host tissue
Posted 07 November 2012 - 12:12 AM
how can I amplify a fungus ITS region which is in the host tissue? my fungus is a biotroph and cannot be cultured, and I have to amplyfy it from the host tissue.
I have extracted the DNA of my infected leaves in which I have both the DNA of the fungus and plant, and I have used primer ITS1 and ITS4, I have got two bands , I extracted the bands from gel, and sequenced them. one was the ITS of plant and the other was the ITS of my fungus.
but is there any other way to amplify only the fungal band?
