We have recently come across an unusual result when isolating cosmid DNA. It
seems as if there are extra bands, one just barely running out of the well on
an agarose gel. It may be due to nicking, and we have noticed that
phenol/chloroform extraction reduces some of the extra bands. The real
unusual part is that there is one cosmid that when isolated yields only a
single band. The isolation has been tried from two different strains of E.
coli, using a Qiagen midi-prep or alkaline lysis with no notable differences.
Also, I though I had read an article that used exonuclease to help get rid of
chromosomal DNA in a plasmid/cosmid prep. I searched BioTechniques, but
couldn't find the article. Has anyone else seen this.
