ABSTRACT
PCR-based markers have been widely used for the analysis of genetic diversity and to avoid ambiguity, molecular characterization is very effective tool for accurate discrimination and identification of a species in insects. Because these studies require analysis of large number of samples, a DNA extraction method that is fast, inexpensive and yields high quality DNA from the preserved samples, needs to be evaluated. A comparative analysis of four methods for DNA extraction from a single specimen of rice weevil, Sitophilus oryzae preserved in 90% alcohol has been communicated. Significantly higher DNA yields were obtained by using SDS-Potassium acetate method followed by CTAB, DNA XPress and Bioline Isolate II genomic DNA kit. Maximum purity (A260/A280- 1.8) was obtained with Bioline Isolate II genomic DNA kit method. The Absorbance ratio was appreciably low with DNA Xpress kit showing the presence of proteins. Bioline Isolate II genomic DNA kit was time efficient and yielded good quality DNA but at a high cost. Based on DNA yield and quality, these evaluations provide a guide for choosing Bioline Isolate II genomic DNA kit method of DNA extraction for rice weevils and optimizing the extraction conditions for rice weevils.

Key words : DNA extraction, Genome, Molecular Characterization, Sitophilus oryzae.
