Abstract. A method to extract high-quality DNA from potato tubers was developed and
tested on 3 wild potato species (Solanum raphanifolium, S. megistracrolobum, S.
bukasovii) and on the tetraploid B3 bred population (population number 393228, derived
from S. tuberosum subsp, tuberosum). The average yield of extracted DNA varied from
10-30 Ixg of DNA per gram of processed tissue. The DNA was pure and suitable for liga-
tion-mediated polymerase chain reaction (LM-PCR) amplification, producing clear, dis-
tinctive, and reproducible banding patterns in polyacrylamide gels.
