  • HOMOGENIZATION AND BEAD TUBE METHODS FOR RNA WORK PART 1: PLANTS AND ANIMAL TISSUES & CELLS

    One of the most efficient ways to extract nucleic acids from a sample is by smashing it against a hard surface repeatedly under high speed until cell walls and membranes crush from the pressure and release their internal contents. In other words: bead beating.   Bead beating is a great way to do what enzymes take hours to accomplish and sometimes never fully succeed in, which is cell lysis to rele...

  • GUEST BLOG: EDAMAME Takeaways

    This past July, I attended the Explorations in Data Analyses for Metagenomic Advances in Microbial Ecology (EDAMAME) Workshop at the Michigan State University, Kellogg Biological Station in July 2016 led by Drs. Ashley Shade, Adina Howe, and Tracy Teal. EDAMAME started from the ground up and was a great way to get hands-on experience using cutting-edge metagenomics techniques. Although, I would ex...

  • HOMOGENIZATION AND BEAD TUBE METHODS PART 2: DETERMINING THE BEST HOMOGENIZATION PROTOCOL FOR ANY SOIL

    As part of our research on the best practices for soil microbial DNA extraction, we collect a wide variety of samples for product development. So when we were developing the protocols for the PowerLyzer 24 Homogenizer 24 Homogenizer, we wanted a protocol that worked for most of the samples tested.  Our work on homogenization and bead tubes previously showed that depending on the soil, sometimes a ...
