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
