Recovery of DNA from agarose gel by trap method
Recovery of DNA from agarose gel electrophoresis is a basic operation during molecular cloning. Circular or linear DNA fragments which vary from 1.5 to 6.5 kb and correspond to 1 kb marker can be recovered from 0.8 to 1.0% agarose gel smoothly with a simple and rapid trap method. The recovery efficiency could be more than 70% and the quality of the recovered DNA is proved to be good enough for future research. Here, we provided another good method to recover DNA from agarose gel besides using commercial kits.
Key words: Trap method, recovery of DNA, agarose gel electrophoresis.
