Hi All,

I’m looking for help getting DNA out of formalized worms. I’ve been 
trying to do DNA extractions using the Qiagen DNeasy Kit and I’m not 
getting anything. I’ve tried bathing the samples in two 15 minute washes 
of room temperature PBS before extraction, but that hasn’t worked 
either. If anyone has worked with formalized worms and has any advice, 
your help is greatly appreciated.
