Application of molecular techniques to study marine rnacroalgae is in its infancy, and is likely to be facilitated by the ability to routinely isolate high quality DNA from these plants. The generally high polysaccharide and polyphenol content in rnacroalgae, however, often interferes with the isolation and subsequent enzymatic manipulation of their nucleic acids. We describe the use of a CTAB method for the isolation of high molecular weight DNA from marine macroalgae. The method is rapid… CONTINUE READING
