You should evaulate the procedure refined and/or developed by the  
Metzenberg lab.  It works well for preparation of many dozens of samples  
of high quality DNA simultaneously from diverse types of mutant strains.  
The crucial point is that the unfrozen samples *must* be thoroughly dried  
according to instructions.  Reference:  Neurospora Newsletter (1981) 28:20  
and (1982) 29: 27. This lab also prepared an unpublished 1989 update and  
synopsis which you could obtain by writing to Dr. Robert L. Metzenberg;   
Department of Biomolecular Chemistry; University of Wisconsin; 1300  
University Avenue; Madison, Wisconsin 53706 (Telephone (608) 262-1507.
