We are having problems extracting DNA from rat tissues using the D NA
PrepAGene matrix kit from Australian Biosearch.  Tissues are
homogenised with 1% SDS lysis buffer and proteinase K and incubated at
56C for 3 hours.  We had some succes earlier with prior extraction
using chloroform/phenol, but the prep was a bit dirty.
Anybody got any good ideas?
