We are trying to visualize DNA in polyacrylamide gels. Is there any reason
why we shouldn't put EtBr in a polyacrylamide gel before polymerizing it
just like we do in agarose gels instead of staining it later? In the
literature I couldn't see such a technique.
I feel that there is a drawback, what can it be?
