   We had been using Magic minipreps to prepare E. coli
genomic DNA.  The standard plasmid protocol worked well
enough to give us a good prep for PCRing our 2kb
(unusually difficult) fragment.  Wizard does not work.
We have now tried home-made resin (recipes posted here), Bio-rad
(both protocols for plasmid and genomic DNA) and Gene-
release from BioVentures.  Dismal failures all around.
We are back to phenol/chloroform extractions.
