I have two protocols for extracting from urediniospores of white pine
blister rust, one using a BIO101 fast prep machine (I am just preparing it
for submission to BIOTECHNIQUES), and one using mini-pestles (visit the
Dendrome site at  Both use
desiccated spores ground dry with diatomaceous earth, but without liquid
nitrogen or dry ice.  Let me know if you want a copy of the protocol for
the fast prep machine.
