Helloooooo, I apologise that I am hijacking the blog from beyond the grave Baltic sea, but I given that the Mol Ecol lab is world renowned for it’s brilliance, innovation, brilliance, etc. I figured someone could help me.
Does anyone have experience of extracting DNA from swabs (buccal swabs, mucus swabs, etc.) cheaply and effectively? If there is a protocol available, or a particular kit which can be recommended, I would be extremely grateful.
You can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by leaving a comment here – if I get a good answer then I can post it on the blog.
Missing the lab very much – has anyone beat Andy at Pétanque yet?
