A simple and efficient method for purification of prawn baculovirus DNA.

A new method for isolation of prawn baculovirus and subsequent extraction of viral DNA was developed. No density gradient centrifugation, ultracentrifugation or phenol-chloroform extraction steps were involved. Phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride (PMSF) was used to prevent proteinase degradation, DNase and RNase were used to degrade prawn DNA and RNA respectively… CONTINUE READING
