Plant-ed compatriots,

  I am a new subscriber to the group.  Apologies if the following has
recently been asked, discussed, etc.  Does anyone have a good protocol for
extracting DNA from any plant material which doesn't require centrifugation
OR phenol, chloroform or other nsty chemicals (EtBr O.K.).  Situation:
University doesn't have a low speed centrifuge now.  High speed not
available for teaching.  Teachin "lab" has no fume hoods, etc.  I am
teaching Plant Physiology to upper division students.  They would like to
extract plant DNA.  I am trying to figure out a way to let them achieve this
within the constraints of our equipment, etc.  Any suggestions much appreciated.

Thank You,
