Samples from the phloem


I am working in a team of plant biologists. At the moment we are looking at the
biofortfication of wheat with Zn. One of the aims of this project is the
identification of soluble Zn-complexes in the phloem and measurement of these
compounds to identify if source supply differs between genotypes.

I am just wondering if we can use this new real-time DNA sequencing technology
for small samples sizes that are coming from the phloem.  I would really
appreciate your opinion regarding this.

Thanks a lot!
