I want to detect relatively small length polymorphisms amplified by
microsatellite specific primers.  EtBr leaves too much back ground and
isn't sensitive enough, radioisotopes are good but I want to try some

Does anyone have on file a protocol for sliver stain nucleic acids in
polyacrylamide gels?  Possibly a few references would be nice.  I've
seen a few 'staining kits' but they don't let on how its really done.
