Summary


Digestion/ ligation reaction

  • Dilute the purified PCR product to 20 fmol/μL
  • Measure ng/μL of the purified sample.
  • The volume of purified DNA (x) you will need to dilute in a final volume of 20 μL = 20 μL final volume * 20 fmols/μL * length in bp * 650 fg/fmol ÷ 1,000,000 fg/ng ÷ measured ng/μL
    • Formula: x = length in bp ÷ measured ng/μL * 0.26
  • Perform BsmBI/ T4 ligase mediated assembly
  • BsmBI cuts the DNA fragments and creates complementary overhangs.
  • Complementary sticky ends anneal via base pairing.
  • T4 ligase seals gaps in the phosphodiester DNA backbone.
