Build-a-BUG: Series 2, Session 4

Saturday, March 23, 2013
Noon to 4:00 PM

This is the fourth Build-A-BUG workshop in a series of five on yeast. You will learn more about molecular cloning and continue to hone your basic lab techniques, while building a mating type detector. After troubleshooting an unexpected problem in Session 3, we will actually do ligations (linking DNA) and transformations of competent E. coli cells.

Notes

  • We ligated all three inserts (MFα promoter, BBa_K165057, and BBa_J63002) into the vector (BBa_K801000) using T4 DNA ligase.
  • We prepared and transformed E. coli with our ligations, then plated on LB+Amp plates. Positive (pUC) and negative (H2Owater) transformation controls show the efficiency of the transformation and effectiveness of the selection, respectively.
  • Students came in on their own after this session to screen colonies with PCR. They then grew up and isolated promising construct pDNAs.
