Isolation of plant genomic DNA is very difficult as plant cell contains many cell organelles such as chloroplast, mitochondria etc. Many plants contain high level of polysaccharides, essential oils and metabolites that make DNA isolation a bit tough. Isolation of such plants has been done by many people and successful isolation has been reported. PCR amplification of plant DNA has also been successfully carried out with RAPD primers, SSR primers etc. This paper presents a review on isolation of genomic DNA from different plants and their fingerprinting.
