Successful preservation of tissue samples is a prerequisite for long field studies in remote areas. However, there is little published information concerning field preservation of marine invertebrate tissues for DNA analyses. This omission is significant because marine biodiversity is centered in the Indo-Pacific, where immediate DNA analysis is often impossible. Consequently, we used an assay based on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to examine the effect of five storage solutions and three… CONTINUE READING

Consequently , we used an assay based on polymerase chain reaction ( PCR ) to examine the effect of five storage solutions and three temperature regimens on the degradation of DNA from four common classes of marine invertebrates ( Anthozoa , Gastropoda , Polychaeta , and Scyphozoa ) .
