A simple and reliable method for extracting genomic DNA from leaf and seed of monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous plants and ascomycete fungal mycelium is described. The method requires only 50mg of sample and yields approximately 10Âµg of high quality DNA. It involves inexpensive, non-organic constituents and can reliably be used for the parallel isolation of 384 DNA samples suitable for PCR based marker analysis. The yield and high quality of extracted DNA from different species, combined with the use of inexpensive, non-hazardous reagents, provides a cost-effective method compatible with a 96 well format. The resultant DNA is suitable for PCR and subsequent fragment analysis using capillary electrophoresis.
