I would like to suggest an alternative method for plant DNA minipreps 
developed by Stephen Dellaporta, J. Wood and James Hicks in Cold Spring 
Harbor Lab: "A Plant DNA Minipreparation: Version II, Plant Molecular 
Biology Reporter, vol. 1:19-21. 

This method is widely used in different plants (dicots and monocots), 
and a small amount of DNA (for 1-2 Southern blots) can be obtained from 
plantlets (less than 0.5 g). By the way, DNA quality is pretty 

Good Luck,
