We want to collect camel blood into EDTA tubes in the field, take them to
our lab (fridge/freezer available) and then ship them to another laboratory
at a later date for DNA extraction. What is the best & easiest DNA
preservation protocol for this purpose?
Any suggestions please send a copy of your email to our address as well.
Thank you very much,
