am having weired PCR results, and would really appreciate it if anyone can help.
kindly, see the attached gel picture.
2- +ve control.
3-11 different tissue extracts tested for the presence of a virus.
the expected band size is 338bp, which is the observed in the positive control.
while all the other tissue samples showed this < 300 bp band ...
why ? if am to think that there is s.th wrong with the run,
i wouldn't have the right band size for the positive control, right ??
and these tissue samples are different i.e some : ovary others: trachea ...
so why to see the same size in all of them regardless of the type ??
today too it happened with another PCR run;
to have the right band size with the positive control while having another band size in all the tissue type samples.
thanks for the time spent reading my post.
