Lock & Key By Yu Tao

Efficiency Test

Transformation Result: Competent Cells II

  • To our superise, there are colonies both in the experimental plate and the negative control plate.
  • Select some colonies from the negative plate, culture them in liquid LB overnight for mini-prep.
  • I decided to redo the efficiency test, with all possible controls. I use the good competent cells and DH5a as control groups, and culture each group on Amp+, Kan+ and Empty LB plate.

Recheck Test Result

     | Competent Cells II | Good Competent Cells |      DH5a
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Amp+ |         +          |          -           |        -
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Kan+ |         -          |          -           |        -
--------------------------------------------------------------------
LB-  |         +          |          +           |        +
  • Conclusion: I need to reprepare the competent cells again. ... -_-:

Mini-prep: R0010<-J01008 and R0040<-J01010

  • Using Transgen mini plasmid purification kit.

Ligation and Transformation: J01010 and J01008 PCR product -> pEASY-T3 cloning vector

  • For sequencing.
  • Use Transgen pEASY-T3 vector.
  • Transform the ligation product, result to be seen tomorrow.
