Today I prepared and ran the first trial of the new series, which was precipitated in 2mM Co and 20mM Mg. Using the approximate concentrations I got from the dilute trial, I also made a new calibration standard. I will be able to analyze the results more tomorrow. I also spent some time today preparing for a paper presentation tomorrow, which I will be making on how osmotic pressure depends on DNA and ion concentrations in solution. They found that at low DNA concentrations, the ions in solution do affect osmotic pressure, but at high DNA concentrations, the concentration of DNA contributes more to the osmotic pressure.
