Does the concentration of alcohol added affect the amount of DNA that precipitates out?
It depends on what concentration is your alcohol at? Say, if you added 60% or 80% alcohol instead of 70% alcohol, it would not make a huge difference, but if you added like 20% alcohol, then the DNA that would precipitate out would be very little because it would dissolve in the water.
