TitleAn improved hot-alkaline DNA extraction method for deep subseafloor microbial communities
Study TypePopulation Genomics
Abstract A prerequisite for DNA-based microbial community analysis is even and effective cell disruption for DNA extraction. With a commonly used DNA extraction kit, ~80% of subseafloor sediment microbial cells remain intact (i.e., the cells are not disrupted), indicating that many microbial community analys .. [more]
