Abstract

DNA isolation is the process of purification of DNA from a single or a collection of samples, using physical or chemical methods of separations. After isolation, the DNA can be used to study genes, which are segments of the DNA. In this study we isolated DNA from five sheep (St. Croix) from the NC A&T small farm using FTA card (Whatman® FTA® card technology). The DNA concentration and purity then were measured using a Nanodrop spectrometer. The results show that pure DNA for the five sheep was collected from the FTA.
