I would like to try to extract DNA from a fruit that was partially eaten by somebody (i.e. I want to extract the DNA of possible buccal cavity cells lying on the surface of the eaten part of the fruit for subsequent PCR). Sounds pretty difficult, but I was wondering if any of you would have an idea of how to maximize the chances of getting something? Which extraction procedure would you recommend? (Also, how shall the sample be preserved before analysis to avoid losing DNA?)
Thanks a lot in advance! Looking forwarding to reading your comments.
