Man Ancient DNA Analysis: Final Report Submitted to the Department of
the Interior, National Park Service

Photo 6: Samples
in early phase of ancient DNA extraction.
Samples shown here are in the early phases of ancient
DNA extraction. Most protocols require an initial demineralization step
in EDTA pH 8.0, and need to rotate slowly in 56C. We seal the samples
in a DNase/RNase free Sarstedt tube with EDTA, place them on an automatic
rotator within an incubator that maintains a steady temperature.
