Default DNA Extraction from Horseshoe Crab Blood



I'm currently having problems extracting DNA from horseshoe crab's blood. I have tried several different protocols such as Sambrook's Phenol:Chloroform method, Aljanabi's Salt precipitation method and even tried using a blood extraction kit however none gave any genomic DNA. All I got was only degraded DNA. Could anyone help me in this?

Thank You

Hey ScubaOwl!
I had this problem before. You need to use a good kit such as Wizard Genomic DNA purification, worked great for me.

also are you keeping things on ice? Dnases may be degrading your DNA.
