Table 3 DNA extraction and sequencing yield from different tissue types for Donor # 292. Yield and quality of DNA from sartorius muscle, striated muscle, gluteus maximus, liver, nerve and spinal cord tissue samples as measured measured by nanodrop and Qubit were sufficient for DNA sequencing, but not for hair and skin

From: DNA sequencing of anatomy lab cadavers to provide hands-on precision medicine introduction to medical students
