Data from: Preservation of RNA and DNA from mammal samples under field conditions

Miguel Camacho-Sanchez, Pablo Burraco, Ivan Gomez-Mestre & Jennifer A. Leonard
Ecological and conservation genetics require sampling of organisms in the wild. Appropriate preservation of the collected samples, usually by cryostorage, is key to the quality of the genetic data obtained. Nevertheless, cryopreservation in the field to ensure RNA and DNA stability is not always possible. We compared several nucleic acid preservation solutions appropriate for field sampling and tested them on rat (Rattus rattus) blood, ear and tail tip, liver, brain and muscle. We compared the...
