I am replying to the list, because this question is of
general interest. I had very satisfactory experience with
DNA extraction from Chlamy with Trizol reagent, following
the original instructions from the manufacturer. This
procedure was fast enough for PCR screening of tens of
transformant clones, but you may need something more
streamlined if you have thousands of them.
