High Resolution mini-gels?

Dear Petros,

I routinely use an acrylamide vertical gel system (Bio-rad mini protean 
for example).  Use acrylamide, TBE and water to make up gel and set with 
TEMED and ammonium persulphate.  You can separate DNA fragments of 
similar sizes depending on the acrylamide concentration you use.  I use 
9% to separate fragments of 200-300bp, you might need to lower or 
increase the acrylamide, depending on your separation.  

Good Luck
