Protocol
 

Experimental Results
 

 The leaves of Citrus reticulata & Oryza sativa were punched by BioTake™ Tissue Puncher (0.8 mm & 1.8 mm puncher tips). Genomic DNA was extracted using Yeastern Biotech’s UniversAll™ Tissue Extraction Buffer at 95°C for 10 min followed by PCR reaction. The results showed that the BioTake™ Tissue Puncher worked well in cutting and retrieving the leaf tissues from both monocot and dicot plants which leads to a consistency PCR results.
