The DSMZ offers quality controlled DNA from nearly all bacterial strains of the collection. Quality is sufficient for PCR-related applications and sequencing on short read platforms such as Illumina. On request, quality controlled DNA can be provided for long read sequencing technologies such as PacBio or Oxford Nanopore Technologies. Quality of isolated genomic DNAs is controlled by standard 16S rRNA PCR. Authenticity is checked by partial sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene (first ~900 base pairs). Concentrations are delivered on tube labels. Quantity shipped is 25 µl. DNAs are stored in TE buffer (10 mM Tris pH 7.5, 1 mM EDTA) at -20°C and are sent at room temperature by airmail.
Please check if DNA of a specific strain is offered in the catalogue.
