Wow! this is cool!!! I guess GenBank should be enough to serve as a gene sequence database hub. I am happy that this method is not so invasive!!!! if further proven to be really practical, this is a breakthrough. What you need is some pearl powder, DNA extraction kit, PCR regents, and sets of primers. Good job!
