People of Flyland,

I have just extracted total RNA from flies that have been frozen at
minus 80 since October 2014-January 2015 and the RNA was all degraded

Was I a fool to try and get RNA out of flies that had been frozen for
ten months? The kit seems fine on fresh flies but tanked with the
frozen ones.
