Question: How do I extract genomic DNA from insects?
Answer: For extracting insect HMW DNA, we have a Demonstrated Protocol using salting out for extracting genomic DNA from single insects (https://support.10xgenomics.com/genome-exome/sample-prep/doc/demonstrated-protocol-dna-extraction-from-single-insects).
The protocol was developed for a single Drosophila melanogaster larva, a single Drosophila melanogaster adult, and a single Aedes aegypti pupa. It may be used for gDNA extraction from other types of insects, but modifications may be necessary.
