Eukaryotic DNA Isolation Protocol

Eukaryotic DNA Isolation Protocol

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) extraction is the process by which DNA is separated from proteins, membranes, and other cellular material contained in the cell from which it is recovered. In eukaryotic cells, such as human and plant cells, DNA is organized as chromosomes in an organelle called the nucleus.  These cells also have a lipid bilayer outer membrane and cytoplasm containing …

Protocol Phenol-chloroform extraction of prokaryotic DNA

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) extraction is the process by which DNA is separated from proteins, membranes, and other cellular material contained in the cell from which it is recovered. The simplest cells, such as bacteria cells, are prokaryotes. These prokaryotes comprise a lipid bilayer outer membrane and a cytoplasm containing a circular chromosome, proteins inorganic salts and metal ions, sugar molecules, …
