Mitochondrial DNA Isolation

What’s mitochondrial DNA? mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is a genetic material of the mitochondria, the organelles that generate energy for the cell. In mammals, mtDNA makes up less than 1% of the total cellular DNA, but in plants the amount is variable. It codes for ribosomal RNA and transfer RNA, but only some mitochondrial proteins (up to 30 proteins in animals), the nuclear DNA being required for encoding most of these. Mitochondrial DNA which is passed down from the mother to all her children, males and females
