Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is a small, rapidly evolving, maternally inherited molecule which has been widely used to study genetic variation (Wilson et al., 1985), particularly the relationships between different taxa (Arise, 1986). For studies of populations a method for mtDNA isolation capable of screening large sample sizes is required, which must be simple and inexpensive (in terms of chemicals, equipment, and time). Existing methods involving the use of lengthy ultracentrifuge techniques… CONTINUE READING
