Dear netters-

        I am looking for a method of quantifying the amount of
5-methylcytosine vs cytosine (relative percent) from a sample of genomic
maize DNA.  If the DNA sample is hydrolyzed into its constituative
nucleotides, could this just be run through an HPLC?  What type of column
would I use?  A current reference to point me in the right direction would
be appreciated.  Answers can be sent to the newsgroup or to my email
address.  I'll post a summary of replies.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I forgot to include my email address.
