Application Note: Automated High Yield Extraction of gDNA from Plant Samples
25 March 2016
This application note demonstrates the potential for high yield gDNA extraction using the MACHEREY-NAGEL NucleoSpin® Plant II Midi kit on a Freedom EVO® platform. Plant research is often geared towards crop improvement, and focuses on yield and robustness to pathogens and other stress factors, such as heat or draught. It is often necessary to sequence the genome, creating the need for purification of high quantities of gDNA. DNA extraction from plant material is therefore an integral step in plant research.
