phenol Vs salting out - (Feb/03/2006 )


I was just wondering which is better phenol extraction or a salting out method? And why?

Also do you think ethanol or isopropanol is better for precipitating DNA?


i prefer isopropanol for great amounts of DNA as it's a 1:1 volume.
After that, phenol or salting out... depend what's your purpose...
