	Well, you see, I have this friend...  No really.  Someone in our lab
left some Triton/boiling minipreps (ala The Big Red Book) in isopropyl
alcohol for >2 weeks.  I guess I'll find out when I get the chance to run
these preps on a gel whether or not they're any good.  In the mean time, I
was wondering if anybody out there has any feel for how stable plasmid DNA,
or DNA in general, is upon extended storage in isopropyl alcohol.
