Ligate for 30-40 minutes at room temperature

Transformation:
Add to 40μl competent E.coli DH5alha cells 10μl ligation mixture
Incubate the samples for 30 min. on ice
Heat shock:
Incubate the samples for 45s at 42°C
After the heat shock: place the cells for 2 min on ice and add after the incubation time on ice 1ml of LB+25mM glucose.
Incubate the samples for 1h to 1.5 h at 37°C
Plate the cells out: Centrifuge the sample, leave 100μl of LB+glucose in the tube and resuspend the pellet.
Plate 90μl and 10μl of the resuspended pellet on plates containing antibiotic(s)

Colony PCR
Colony PCR of the RBS-GFP-DT plasmid from the distribution kit. Yesterday, that sample had been transformed again, since there
were some difficulties with the plasmid in cloning purposes. It did not seem to have the insert (RBS-GFP-DT) anymore.

PCR mix:
10× Taq buffer: 20μl
dNTPs 10mM each: 4μl
MgCl2: 12μl
BB forward primer: 4μl
BB reverse primer: 4μl
Taq polymerase: 1μl
MQ water: 155μl

PCR conditions:
Pre heated lid at 111°C
Denaturation: 94°C for 10 min
Cycle 33×
Denaturation: 94°C for 30s
Annealing: 60°C for 30s
Extension: 72°C for 2.5 min
Final extension: 72°C for 10 min
Store at 4°C infinite
