Preparation

  • Prepare DNA from cell sample during mid-log phase, or as extraction kit designates.
  • Use Spectrophotometer to determine concentration and total amount of extracted DNA.


Program Thermocycler

  • Use standard program.
  • Use Tannealing that is 5°C lower than the smallest Tm of the primers.
  • Use final extension time of 1 min.
  • May use extended primary melting time, to ensure full denaturation of template.
  • Use at least 30s to one min extension cycle per kb of product.

  • Be sure to run at least four varying Mg2+ concentrations in order to optimize yield and fidelity.
  • Run a gel using some product and product digestion to verify fragment size and proper restriction sites.
