     I believe the article that you remember is from an old FOCUS from BRL: 
     Zeugin and Hartley, vol. 7, no. 4, page 1.

howdy from utah,
i swear i remember reading some article, perhaps in TIBS, in which the 
efficiency of different methods for precipitating nucleid acids was 
analyzed.  ie, incubations at -20 deg C Vs just spinning the samples 
for some length of time.
i thought the conclusion was that the only thing that really matter 
was the length of the spin.
anyone have any idea what i'm talking about?
