..Help
..I'm about do do my first RNA gel/Northern blot and I'm confused.
..Why does everybody use formamide gels instead of glyoxal/DMSO
..(which according to Maniatis give sharper bands)?
..I would prefer not to use formamide as we don't have a fume
..hood in the lab.
..Any suggestions?
..Any other ideas always welcome!
