Single rotifer extraction for population genetics

  • Trying to single rotifer-extractions using fusion primers designed for population genetics

PCR conditions

Reaction mixture conc. 1x 76
TopTaq buffer10x176
dNTP mix10 mM each0.215.2
Primer mix5 uM each1
TopTaq (QIAGEN)5U/ul0.053.8
  • 3 min @95C, (5s 95C, 1 min 60C)x35 on Takara machine
  • using MIDs 1 through 12
  • rotifers from Gushikawa 01
    • each placed with 5-10 ul water into a PCR tube. Then 30ul instagene were added and incubated 30min at 56, 30min at 95C, vortexing occasionally


  • Pretty much blank gel. There was some weak amplification in the last sample, but it looks like the extractions have failed.
  • Need to optimize single-rotifer extraction
