Isolation of genomic DNA is an essential technique in modern research science, particularly molecular biology and biotechnology.
Genomic DNA is purified from a multitude of sources including mammalian tissue, such as cheek cells (BE-303), plant cells or bacterial cells.
These kits use detergent lysis and precipitation to purify genomic DNA from onion. Other plants or fruits can be used, such as strawberries. These kits do not utilize toxic agents, such as phenol or chloroform for genomic DNA extraction.
Agarose electrophoresis can be used to visualize the genomic DNA on an agarose gel.
