I am doing research with students this summer.  We want to
extract water soluble pigments from rumex or phycobilins from
red algae.  We are unable to find a protocol.  We have access to thin layer 
chromatography, UV spectrometer, spectrophotometer, and possibly
HPLC equipment for further analysis if we can extract and 
separate the pigments.  Can someone help us?
