I have been using G NOME kit for isolations either from cultured fibroblasts, 
or from murine tail pieces. I have allways obtained high quantities of high
quality G-DNA. I have performed the procedure on the same amounts of cells,
by spooling on a glass rod, but I also successfully downscaled the reaction
by a 1:10 ratio, collecting the DNA by spinning.
Are you certain there's no degradation of your DNA? Do you regularely obtain
G-DNA from the same cultures by "normal" Phenol extractions ? 

As allways: I'm not associated with BIO-101 etc.

Sincerely, Benny.
