The source of DNA of adequate quality and quantity is an important consideration in genome analysis. In many animal and livestock species, easy access to DNA will facilitate the rapid and reliable genotyping of a large number of individual individuals. Here, we describe the use, for the first time, of buccal cells from non-human mammalian species as a source of DNA template for PCR and restriction analysis. The buccal cells from the pig, cow and human, were used to amplify PCR fragments that were scanned SNPs and for comparative genome analysis. The work indicates that buccal cells are also adequate sources of DNA for genome analysis of animals that have been identified as priorities in comparative genomics.

    A chip was developed to store DNA for medical research. The optional restriction site fixed on the chip can randomly ligate with whole human genomic DNA treated by the corresponding restriction enzyme. PCR can then use the chip as template DNA. Moreover, a chip fixing two restriction sites (e.g....
