Isolated DNA from 4 fecal samples provided by Ava. Fecal samples were on filters stored at -80C. Samples were thawed slightly to allow unrolling of the filters. Feces was transferred to pre-weighed tubes and then weighed.
DNA was extracted using the QIAmp Fast DNA Stool Mini Kit (Qiagen) following the manufacturer’s protocol with the following options:
- Samples were incubated at 95C to maximize cell lysis
- Followed “human DNA analysis” protocol for remainder of protocol (to maximize sample recovery)
- Eluted DNA with 100μL Buffer ATE
Samples were stored at 4C in FSH240 in the boxes “Ava WS Transmission DNA Extractions by Sam Box 2″. See the master spreadsheet at the bottom of this post for specific sample locations within this box.
