PEG8000 is the same as PEG6000 (see Sigma catalog). The size
was originally underestimated(?) and listed as 6,000.

Can anyone explain the reason that some protocols use 30%PEG8000/1.6MNaCl to
precipitate M13 phage while other protocols use 20%PEG6000/2.5M NaCl?
Also, what difference does PEG6000 make compared to PEG8000?
