comment Does RNA polymerase move around DNA or does DNA rotate benath the polymerase?
I think he is asking a different question. At some point the RNA should be wound around the DNA if the RNAP is spinning around the DNA.

@shigeta, certainly there are RNA viruses that are excellent examples of RNA functioning as hereditary materials.

@Jonsca, I'm actually ok with this type of question. The alternative way to ask how to achieve such things but not exactly from whom, which is a reuseuable question. (ie how to appropriate go about contacting certain people)

comment Providing small molecules to cells on a filter plate
@WYSIWYG, Batch should be fine. The question is what would be the setup to do so. Would it be as simple as reversing a 96 well lid over and placing the filter plate on top? What about the wetting?

I am an engineer by training. The default option is always to fix it yourself. Usually with duct tape.

@Shigeta, alas it wasn't my column. I guess it's time to buy some new resin.

I'm going to try the high salt. That's a good suggestion. The reverse flow probably won't work since I've repacked the column a few times by now
