Dissolving plasmid DNA afterprecipitation

     What is your template isolation method.  If it is Quiagen or 
alike with a solid support column, I have seen where some of this 
support can come through into samples.  These then pellet down with 
ppt DNA and will not resuspend when dissolving your plasmid.  If you 
are using these methods of template prep then try a control of just 
H2O over the column and see if you get solid pellet/ppt.  Hope this 
helps, good luck.
