Product Description

Rapid, High-Throughput Isolation of PCR-Ready Genomic DNA from Plant and Seed Samples The FastDNA™-96 Plant and Seed DNA Kit is designed for the simple and rapid isolation of PCR-quality DNA from vegatative samples in approximately 50 minutes. Plant samples including stems, roots, leaves, buds, flowers, fruits and seeds are efficiently lysed in approximately 60 seconds with the FastPrep-96™ Instrument. Up to 80 mg samples are placed into each 1.2 ml tube of a FastDNA-96™ Lysing Matrix Rack ( 96-deep well plate) containing 2.0 mm specially stabilized Zirconium oxide lysing particles, which are designed to efficiently lyse a wide variety of plant specimens, while in the presence of a specially formulated lysis solution. The cleared lysate is then applied to a binding matrix to isolate the DNA, and spin column plates are used to simplify liquid handling. Eluted DNA is then applied to the MP-96 Inhibitor Removal Plate which removes tannins, polyphenols and polysaccharides that can inhibit PCR. Purified DNA is eluted in an EDTA-free, DNA elution solution, and is ready for downstream applications including digestion, electrophoresis, arrays and PCR (A260/A280 ratios = 1.8). Yield is typically 5 µg of total DNA eluted in 50-100 µl of elution solution. This procedure can be performed in minutes, and there is no need for organic denaturants or proteinases.

Tardigrades, nearly microscopic animals that can survive the harshest of environments, including outer space, hold the record for the animal that has the most foreign DNA.
GMO Food Animals Should be Judged by Product, Not Process
In a world with a burgeoning demand for meat, milk and eggs, regulatory policies around the use of biotechnologies in agriculture need to be based on the safety and attributes of those foods rather than on the methods used to produce them, says a UC Davis animal scientist.
Cancer-Fighting Tomato Component Traced
The metabolic pathway associated with lycopene, the bioactive red pigment found in tomatoes, has been traced by researchers at the University of Illinois.

A more complete and accurate wheat genome assembly is being made available to researchers, by The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) on 12 November 2015.
Shedding Light on the Origin of the Date Palm
Researchers also find ‘genetic mutation’ that is responsible for dates’ color.
New Way to Find DNA Damage
University of Utah chemists devised a new way to detect chemical damage to DNA that sometimes leads to genetic mutations responsible for many diseases, including various cancers and neurological disorders.
Speeding Up Potato Breeding
A joint project is investigating the potential of drones for speeding up the development of new potato varieties.
Gene Editing Could Enable Pig-To-Human Organ Transplant
The largest number of simultaneous gene edits ever accomplished in the genome could help bridge the gap between organ transplant scarcity and the countless patients who need them.
Ancestors of Land Plants Were Wired to Make the Leap to Shore
When the algal ancestor of modern land plants made the transition from aquatic environments to an inhospitable shore 450 million years ago, it changed the world by dramatically altering climate and setting the stage for the vast array of terrestrial life.
