Extraction Notes

  • Samples were already preserved in 300µL DNA/RNA Sheild so did not add more
  • Digested for 3 hours and 40 minutes at 55°C 1100 rpm except for samples 13 and 796. These test tubes were too large for the thermomixer and so digested at 55°C speed 35 in Incubator-Genie
  • Added additional 15µL Proteinase K after 3 hours
  • Some lipids left in samples
  • Pelleted at 2300 rcf for 1 min

Qubit

  • Followed Broad Range dsDNA and RNA Qubit protocol
  • All samples were read twice
