Hello everybody!
Does any of you know an effective protocol for extracting DNA from
tissues taken from a buried corpse. I need it for a paternity
identification of a man died fifteen years ago.
I've specimens of muscle, teeth, tendons and bone taken from te body. I
suppose muscle should be the easiest tissue to extract DNA from, but I'm
not sure it's also the most valuable. 
Thanks for your help.
