Here's what we do in the lab. With a new scalpel blade, cut out the gel band of
interest and put in a tube with a screw cap. Add 100 ul deionized water and
incubate 1h in a water bath at 70 Celcius, then leave overnight on the bench.
Quickspin and transfer the water to a new eppendorf tube. Precipitate 1h at
-20 with 5 ul glycogen (10 mg/ml), 10 ul NaOAc 3M ph 5,3 and 450 ul ETOH
100%. After centrifugation, wash the pellet with 85% ETOH instead of
70% because if the % of ethanol is too low, your small DNA fragments
will disolve themselves in it. Resuspend in 12 ul water. Use 4 ul for
reamplification PCR.
