Just yesterday I compared three methods for isolating ~200ng of a linear
12kbp fragment from LMT. I got quantitative recovery by phenol extracting
2x (use no CHCl3) and EtOH pptn of the melted gel (glycogen as carrier).
I tried Boehringer's Agarase followed by pptn, also quantitative. And I
also extracted the fragment using a homemade "Wizard" miniprep kit (ala
this newsgroup), which gave me ~40% recovery but was the fastest method.
