If I remember correctly, the alkaline/acid technique used for iso-
lating plasmid DNA from bacteria was originally developed for mitochondrial
DNA! The mitochondrial genome, like plasmids, is in a closed circular form
and thus resists permanent denaturation in strong base. You might want to
look up some papers from David Clayton written in the late 60's through the
early 70's... I think.
