Has anyone got any ideas about this??
I'm trying to get DNA from wax emmbeded brain
but no luck so far (for PCR).  I've tried the
Nucleon I kit from scotlab - got 100-200bp
but i really need bigger DNA.  Do I de-wax or not?
Has anyone got a working protocol??
Please reply to me via the board, or e-mail my friend
sfaruque@ uk.ac.mrc-crc (I haven't sorted an account for
myself yet).
