You don't specify prokaryote or eukaryote. If the former, I recommend
the following technique, which doesn't use phenol.  It does, however,
use chloroform.

  author =       "R. J. Owen and P. Borman",
  title =        "{A rapid biochemical method for purifying high
                 molecular weight bacterial chromosomal DNA for
                 restriction enzyme analysis}",
  journal =      "Nucleic Acids Res.",
  volume =       "15",
  pages =        "3631",
  year =         "1987",
