:) Hi all
Hope that someone here can help, I have received from a well meaning contact in Trinidad alcohol preserved plant tissues... i should be more clear, he used vodka to preserve the plants I think. Anyway, i have taken 1/2 (>1g) of the leaf tissues and dried them in a vacuum oven, the rest remains in the alcohol. Both are in the freezer to prevent any further degradation, as if that is possible.

I am aware of protocols for DNA extraction from alcohol preserved insect tissues, our bug people here use it fairly reliably, but no one seems to know if there is a protocol for plant tissues that will work; or for that matter if CTAB of some variant might be effective? any suggestions thanks
