Genomic DNA

Genomic DNA is potentially available from any strain in the Stock Center. Exceptions may be made for slow or poorly growing species. The strains currently available from the Stock Center and their Stock ID numbers are listed here. You can also interactively search for specific strains or strain information. If you do not see what you want, contact us for further information.


Genomic DNA is available for most species in the Stock Center. Exceptions may be made for species that are difficult to grow or do not grow to high enough density to facilitate purification of sufficient amounts of genomic DNA using our standard protocol.

Product Format:
Supplied in 1 x TE buffer

Amount of DNA:
A minimum of 10 µg in 1X TE buffer for most species. Larger amounts can be special ordered. Note: Slow or poorly growing species may provide less DNA. Inquire about specific species of interest.

Quality control:

$225 for academic use / $450 for non-academic (Inquire about cost for larger amounts of DNA from a given strain.)

To place an order for genomic DNA:
Select the stock ID number (SD followed by a number, e.g. SD00178) for the strain from which you want genomic DNA.

On the standard ordering form, fill in the billing/shipping information, then scroll down to “Enter the stock ID(s) of the Tetrahymena strain(s) you want genomic DNA from". Enter the Stock ID for each strain from which you are requesting genomic DNA, and click the submit button to complete your order.
