A simple procedure for maximum yield of high-quality plasmid DNA

Biotechniques. 1990 Dec;9(6):676-9.


We have established a simple procedure for the rapid isolation of high-quality plasmid DNA suitable for various molecular techniques and provided a step-by-step protocol. The DNA samples isolated by this procedure have been used successfully for double-stranded DNA sequencing, restriction enzyme mapping, subcloning, in vitro mutagenesis, generation of deletion clones and so on. The procedure is highly reproducible, and superior quality DNA can be obtained without the use of phenol, chloroform or other organic solvents.
