Somewhere in my collection of references there is a report about lysozyme
not being necessary, and even reducing plasmid yield, in some strains of
_E. coli_. So I could not help wondering if anyone has tried a boiling
miniprep without adding lysozyme.
I personally use the alkaline lysis method modified somewhat, but without
lysozyme, for mini-, midi- and maxipreps of plasmids.
