DNA Isolation - Olympia oyster whole body

Continued the extractions that Steven began yesterday and this morning using the E.Z.N.A. Mollusc DNA Kit (Omega Bio-Tek) after the RNase treatment @ 70C.

  • Samples were cooled to RT (~10mins)

  • Added 300μL of 100% EtOH to each (equivalent to the volume of aqueous phase Steven recovered from each sample)

  • Followed manufacturer’s protocol

  • Eluted all samples with 50μL of Elution Buffer

  • Spec’d on Roberts Lab NanoDrop1000






DNA looks absolutely pristine and has amazing yields.

Will check gDNA integrity via agarose gel tomorrow.
