The stability of the DNA double helix is affected by a number of factors, including the intrinsic characteristics of this DNA sequence, the storage condition, the buffer used and the storage temperature. Usually the plasmids can be stored in deionized water for many years at -20 °C (non-auto-defrost freezer) . Due to the chelating function inherent in EDTA, storing DNA in TE buffer can also provide additional protection for DNA. And of course, lyophilized form has the longest shelf life expectation among all the storage methods.
