Hello Netters,

Has anybody out there extracted DNA from insects embedded in amber?
Or attempted to?  What happened?

This question was posted to sci.bio and bionet.molbio.methds-reagnts,
and one of the people who replied suggested posting here.  Please
email me if you have any information, and I will post a summary to
these three groups.

I am turning to the net because the library here closes at 5:00
Friday and doesn't reopen until 1:00 p.m. Sunday due to budget
cuts.  Makes a literature search difficult!!

Thanks, Nina
