PEG + NaCl is quite a common method for inexpensively cleaning up a PCR 
reaction. It will ppt. the amplified DNA whilst leaving behind primers, 
dNTPs and DNA polymerase.

Possibly published by Wayne Barnes in his Klentaq fidelity paper in I 
think Gene around 1991-1993. Makes me feel old writing that as I 
remember reading it then.

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing noise they make as
they go flying by.
