Does Contamination by Agar Affect PCR?

Post by macpat » Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:49 pm

I'm growng cyanobacteria on agar plates using BG11sub0 media. Does anyone know of a specific protocol for DNA extraction when using agar? Will contamination by agar inhibit or affect the PCR or DNA extraction at all? References?
