: Unlike upward standard DNA transfer technique, this downward has a big 
: chance to be short-circuit between upper and lower constructs. How do 
: you make construct above the gel? If it is not too thick enough, wick 
: ppaper may have chance to contact lower paper towel construct which i
: just below the gel.

I surrounded the gel with stripes of Parafilm and put the upper towels on
that. No problems with short circuits.
