Previous entry Next entry
Due to low yield of plasmid from last attempt, am trying again from streaked plates made earlier.
Once again, liquid culture density is very low. Suspect it's because there's no actual plasmid present.
Followed the instructions in the Sigma Plasmid Miniprep kit.
Digest for 10 minutes at 37°C.
Lost most of sample 1 while pipetting into the lane. Bands will probably be very faint.
Expected size fragments from EcoRI/SpeI digestion: 2132, 224
Still no trace of plasmid present. Going to assume cloning did not work. Will try again next week with fresh phosphatase & ligase, using dephosphorylated backbone as another control.
