DNA Extraction Techniques for Genomic Analyses of Macroalgae

Wilson, Laura J.; Weber, Xénia A.; King, Tania M.; Fraser, Ceridwen


Extracting high-quality DNA in large quantities from Phaeophyceae (brown), Rhodophyta (red), and Chlorophyta (green) macroalgae presents a substantial obstacle for modern molecular studies. Macroalgal tissues are rich in polysaccharides and polyphenols that are known to interfere with downstream molecular techniques. These compounds are released during DNA extraction procedures and often persist despite purification attempts. A wide range of DNA extraction and purification methods have...[Show more]
