Hello,

I am trying to extract DNA from Birch, Rhododendron, and Elm.  I have been
having trouble getting good results.  I have tried numerous methods but
cannot get significant amounts of good DNA.  Does anyone have any good
insights? I think that the problems may be due to polysaccharide and
polyphenolic precipitation but am unsure.

If anyone has a good protocol for woody plant DNA extraction, or any
suggestions, please email me directly (tsripo at uidaho.edu).

Thank you very much for your help.

Sincerely,
Thanya Sripo
