DNA extracted from Cliococca selaginoides accession 206, which I collected in Uruguay. The plant can be seen here and here. And here's some RNA, if you prefer that.

    Very nice. You should try taking some more and futzing with focus/f-stop/macro. That said, I like the focus in this one...

    karu21 , it was just a basic CTAB/chloroform extraction, not a kit or anything, from silica-dried leaf material.
