Rhododendron DNA extractions
Has anyone had trouble getting good DNA yield from fresh-collected Rhododendron samples? If so, have you found a good protocol that has worked for problematic samples?

We have used the Qiagen DNeasy kit but have used ethanol precipitations instead of column cleanup because DNA in vireyas was not binding to the columns.

We've had good luck with phenol cholorform extractions, although we've only tried it on a few species.

I've used more Qiagen DNEasy than anything over the past decade with good results. I modified for herbarium materia or silica-dried material according to Drabkova et al (2002?)...though their work was done on Juncus or something.

Glad you both like the Quiagen DNEasy, because I have a bunch of those purchased that Im planning to use on R. minus

I haven't had a lot of issues with extraction, but I know a member of our lab had some issues with Qiagen.

We most recently used this kit for Target-Capture sequencing with great results:

If you want a cheaper route, we have some CTAB protocols that also worked well for troublesome samples. Email me and I can send them over.
