Thank you, does this mean you must separate your target DNA from the vector before sequencing using a restriction enzyme?

I'm wouldn't know exactly but I do know that the best migraine preventative treatments seem to be anti anxiety and anti depressant medication so it would make sense that there is a link to me. This is just my personal opinion though and I know little on the subject.

Heme is the non polypeptide component, it is not one atom so can therefore be described as a heme group. It is a prosthetic group which is bound to a protein but not a protein molecule itself. Don't get too hung up what to call it call it a "heme" or a "heme group".

A heme/haem is a group so the terminology is interchangable. You don't need to put the word "group" on the end of it for it to mean the same thing. Hence when it says "heme is a prosthetic group" it could also say, "a heme group is a prosthetic group" it all means the s...

I managed to get hold of a copy of "Identifying filamentous fungi" by Guy St-Germain. Looks to be a very good book for what I need.

Thank you, do you know of any decent lab manuals/books with mycology identification methods. There doesn't seem to be a lot out there whereas there is an abundance of bacterial identification texts.

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately its something I need to be able to do to an extent. Hopefully I will be able to somehow identify down to genera level even if not species level.
