The purpose of this subproject is to make the nah operon biobrick compatible for the use of future iGEM teams. The nah operon codes for a pathway that converts naphthalene into salicylate. In our system, this will allow naphthalene to be detected by the salicylate reporter. There are three standard cut sites internal to the operon which we are removing - PstI, and two NotI sites. This biobrick compatible piece could be useful to future teams in projects that involve bioremediation or detection of naphthalene.

====June 19th, Tuesday====
 
-
*Ran [[Gibson Assembly]] of nah operon fragments into pBMT-1 backbone and [[Transformation | transformed]] into DH5a electrocompotent ''E. coli'' cells.
 
-
*Set up [[PCR]] to amplify the Gibson Assembly products.

====June 20th, Wednesday====
 
-
*Set up a [[digestion]] of the PCR of Gibson Assembly products and ran the digested products on a gel to see if Gibson worked.
 
-
*Three colonies on plates of DH5a transformed with Gibson Assembly product. Made [[liquid cultures]] to miniprep and sequence.

====June 22nd, Friday====
 
-
*[[Miniprep | Miniprepped]] directly transformed Gibson Assembly product for sequencing using the the Gibson nah1F and nah4R primers (each w/ 20 bp overhangs).
 
-
*Ran undigested miniprep with [http://2011.igem.org/Team:Cornell/Protocols gel electrophoresis], looking for large bands corresponding to supercoiled DNA. The gel shows distinct bands for all three lanes. We interpreted this to mean that we got product. Submitted for [[sequencing]]
