I would like to extract total DNA from soil slurry reactor and I 
especially interested in the gram-positive segment of the microbial 
community.  Is it known whether DNA is harder to extract from 
gram-positive organisms and spores, or will normal procedures work 
well?  Do you recommend lysozyme use?  

Any references would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
