yes, I agree as well .... ..but then just the heated debate made me read
all the responses (perhaps just a case of perverse curiosity  ;)) ...I
wonder why Chen is so vehement about the primer story, perhaps he spent a
huge amout of time trying to tease out the "mystery of the appearing band",
and perhaps has data on it......but, I definitely think AC has a point .....
although, I would like to point out that there is a general belief, or
should I say "wisdom", passed on as the word of mouth that  low mol weight
band in pcr runs are the primers  .... 'cause when I began doing pcrs that's
what I was told as well, and I never ever questioned it .... take home
message, I guess,  is peer wisdom is never the gospel truth :) ... thanks
