Columbia Genetics Lab Notebook

July, 2012

Week 1

Thursday, 5th

  • Re-hydrated plasmids with 50µl of LB and Kanamycin solution
  • Stored solution at 37°C incubator overnight

Friday, 6th

  • Purified pET26b vector using standard DNA purification protocol

Week 2

Monday, 9th

  • Received kill gene Bba-K124017 from plate 3, 20M
  • Re-hydrated DNA according to standard iGEM re-hydration protocol

Tuesday, 10th

  • Contacted professors at Germany in hopes to receive copies of fungal phytochrome FphA

Wednesday, 11th

  • Received confirmation by professors at Germany for FphA to be sent to Columbia University
  • Conducted transformation using electroporation with competent bacteria (marked by resistance to Kanamycin)
    1. Control: 1µl of deionized water with abt. and 60µl of bacteria cells
    2. Variable: 1µl of re-hydrated kill gene and 60µl of bacteria cells
  • Placed both samples after electroporation into 200µl of preprepared LB
  • Placed samples in shaker 37°C for 30 minutes
