The present study deals with the extraction of genomic DNA from the black scented rice of Manipur. Here, an easy and reliable technique introduced by Whatman (a part of GE Healthcare) using FTA Cards is used for genomic DNA extraction from the young leaves of the black scented rice. The samples were collected from different parts of the state during the growing season. The result shows clear DNA band during Gel Electrophoresis. Further research for the qualification and quantification of the DNA extracted is going on for the development of the black scented rice using different molecular techniques.
