Kennewick Man Ancient DNA Analysis: Final Report Submitted to the Department of the Interior, National Park Service
By D. Andrew Merriwether and Graciela S. Cabana

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.
