Optimization of DNA extraction for quantitative marine bacterioplankton community analysis

A protocol was optimised for the efficient extraction of DNA from seawater. It was found that a number of different steps in the extraction of DNA from seawater needed optimisation.

The protocol will be valuable to researchers working with molecular-based methods in seawater.
