How pure is my DNA sample?? - Confused-need help urgently please! (Mar/01/2009 )

Spectrophotometer Readings:-

Absorbance- 0.031
DNA/RNA conc- 1.7 ug/mL
Ratio- 1.651
Protein- 0.0 mg/mL

Dilution was 1/10

1.) How pure is DNA sample? (possible contaminants?)

3.)How to improve yield and purity of DNA sample? (except improve pipetting or increase sterility)



Ahhh, another homework question.

Try looking it up, there are lots and lots of basic DNA extraction sites on the web.
