I haven't done any in vitro transcription yet, but I've been thinking about
doing some in the future.  Hence I am also very interested in the answer.  I
will add that I have heard rumors that DNA purified by Quiagen collumn works
very well for this purpose.  Does anyone out there have any experience with
this?  Thanks.
