A comprehensive collection of different methods for extracting high-quality genomic DNA from Gram-positive and -negative bacteria and fungal mycelium and spores is described in this chapter. Special care has been taken in describing the ideal ratio of biological material to chemical reagents for an efficient extraction of genomic DNA, and in stating the appropriate application in molecular biology protocols (e.g., PCR or genomic DNA library-cloning quality).
