Is this problem with ethidium and attachment/hybridisation a general fact or
an isolated incident?  How great is the loss of attachment and hybridisation?
Does it depend on the method of attachment (UV or baking)?  Is it independent
of the size/composition of the RNA?  Do other methods of visualisation
(methylene blue or SYBR II etc.) interfere to the same extent?
		Curious and concerned,
