Application Info

Description:

Molecular analysis of soil DNA offers a direct solution for detecting microorganisms residing in soil and for studying microbial diversity. Isolation of DNA from soils is often challenging because of the presence of many contaminants, like humic acid, that can interfere with the extraction process and are inhibitory to several downstream applications. An ideal DNA extraction method should effectively eliminate inhibitory substances and maximize DNA yields. The main objective of this study was to compare the performance of Omni International’s Soil DNA Kit (26-013G/B) to that of Company M’s Soil DNA Isolation Kit in terms of DNA yield and quality, as well as amplification potential and sensitivity of detection using real-time PCR.
