Hi,
We at BioServe think we have probably extracted DNA from every source.
This is very interesting.
We probably could try our techniques on a couple of yr. samples and work on the
rest later.
We could work on the samples free of cost and give you a quote for the rest.
I could give you a few references if you wish to check us out.
If using a company to extract your DNA is not a feasible option, then  I wish
you good luck and hope that you will share the protocol for extraction with the
rest of us.
Thanks
Lalit
PS We did a few hundred extractions from Shrimp and Prawn. Is this similar???
