Hello everybody,

A while back (could be a couple of months or so) there were some postings
about different methods of blotting DNA and or RNA, in particular I remember
being mentioned a downward blot using a sponge soaked with the particular 
solution on top of the gel, and with the nitrocellulose/nylon beneath it.
This method, as i remember, was only meant to take a couple of hours, as 
our lab has always used capillary blot in the reverse direction taking o/n
I would be very interested where I can find a protocol for this method. 
(I want to do some blots quite soon, but I dont fancy blotting overnight)
Any timesaving advice would be appreciated. (In terms of blotting equipment 
in our lab, we basically only have membranes and paper towels)
