The damaging effect of formalin on DNA and the inhibition of PCR are serious problems in molecular studies. The aims of the project were to investigate the possibility of using formalin-fixed, Steedman's preserved museum specimens in molecular investigations, especially organisms with unstudied genomes. A number of DNA extraction protocols and different pre-washing/drying regimes were tested.
