Notes of Experiments

July 6th, 2012

  1. We discuss our all of the possible projects, and finally choose one. And then allocate works to specific member.
  2. Do some pre-experiment and make some reagants.
    1. Liquid LB
      1. 10g tryptone
      2. 5g yeast extract
      3. 10g NaCl
    2. Solid LB
      1. 10g tryptone
      2. 5g yeast extract
