Technical note: Bone DNA extraction and purification using silica-coated paramagnetic beads.

Abstract

The goal of this study was to develop a simple method to improve DNA recovery from challenging bone samples. To this end, an optimized procedure was developed that combined the demineralization and DNA extraction into a single step, followed by DNA purification using an automated silica-coated paramagnetic bead procedure. This method replaced a previous… (More)
