I have just obtained some bees (mostly chitin and little muscle tissue) from a
archeological site. They are around 800 years old and I wish to extract the
DNA, if any, that may be there. I have done RAPDs on bees and mites but I don't
know how to extract this old DNA.
Suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
