Hi! I need help with a question that one of the student asked me during lab
Why is a preparation of DNA considered to be pure if OD260/OD280 => 1.8?
Actually, I've never thought of it myself so I went around asking my labmates.
Well, nobody really knows the answer. Then I heard that there's possibly a
theoretical formula that sets the above value range.
If this is true, I would appreciate it if someone out there can point me to
Thanks in advance.
