First off, what is more stable, DNA, or proteins (and how did you arrive at that conclusion)? The part in parentheses is somewhat important, as our lab is deciding on tests to run on 5 year old samples, and we need to think about what to do with our very limited quantity of sample.
My boss thinks that DNA is more stable, and my coworker thinks that protein is more stable.
Presuming that DNA is more stable, what sort of tests can we run on our samples (between knockout and wildtype) that might be able to show some interesting information? My boss has suggested EMSA. Anything else you can think of?
