I would like some advice on a recent problem that I am facing. When I PCR 
out using template DNA, the products from a smear. My primers should 
amplify a 260bp band , but i am unable to see that band. A smear is 
present in the whole lane. I tried using all fresh reagents and this 
problem persists. My PCR conditions are 95 -1min, 55-30secs, 72-1min, 40 
cycles.I would very much appreciate any suggestions
