Isolated DNA from the following pinto abalone (Haliotis kamtschatkana) digestive gland tissues (stored in ethanol), collected by Sean Bennett as part of his Capstone project:
Tissue was weighed and then DNA extracted.
DNA was extracted using the QIAmp Fast DNA Stool Mini Kit (Qiagen) following the manufacturer’s protocol with the following options:
- Samples were briefly homogenized (due to their stiffness resulting from ethanol fixation) in the InhibitEX Buffer using disposable plastic pestles.
- Homogenized tissue was 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
Used the Roberts Lab Qubit 3.0 and the Qubit hsDNA Kit (high sensitivity). Used 1uL of template for all samples.
Samples were stored at -20C in FSH240 in the “Pinto Transcriptome DNA” box.
All samples have DNA.
