Generation P1 Phage Stock
1. Prepared P1 Stock from Yale University a. LB b. Kanamycin stock 25mg/ml to add to strain JW1228-1 C1V1=C2V2 25000 ug/ml (V1) = 50ug/ml (5ml) C1 = 25000 ug/ml --> kanamycin concentration C2 = 50 ug/ml V2 = 5 ml broth 25000 ug/ml (V1) = 250 ug V1 = 0.01 ml = 10 uL --> kanamycin to add to strain JW1228-1 Incubate kanomycin in LB broth until 11am 11/14/12
1. Overnight culture did not grow. Possible reason is: The JW1228-1 culture taken from the 4°C refrigerator was old and was probably no longer living. To address this possibility we will redo the procedure using frozen JW1228-1 stock. 2. Prepared new overnight culture with frozen JW1228-1 glycerol stock (following the procedure carried out on 10/13/12)
a. LB b. Kanamycin stock 25mg/ml to add to strain JW1228-1 C1V1=C2V2 25000 ug/ml (V1) = 50ug/ml (5ml) C1 = 25000 ug/ml --> kanamycin concentration C2 = 50 ug/ml V2 = 5 ml broth 25000 ug/ml (V1) = 250 ug V1 = 0.01 ml = 10 uL --> kanamycin to add to strain JW1228-1 Incubate kanomycin in LB broth until 10:30 am 11/15/12
1. JW1228-1 overnight culture grew. The next step in the procedure was carried out according to Yale University.
2. Preparation of 10ml containing 20% Glucose solution
a. Calculations 20g/100 ml = x/10ml x=2 g of glucose
3. The 20% glucose solution was made using filtered water and 2 g of glucose. The resulting 10 ml of glucose solution was filtered.
4. Preparation of Overnight JW1228-1 culture to be used in P1 phage infection
a. Calculation to make a 1:100 dilution of JW1228-1 overnight culture 1/100=x/5ml 100x=5ml x=0.05 ml or 50 ul b. Two culture tubes were created for P1 phage infection i. Each tube include: 50 ul of overnight culture, 50 ul of 20% glucose, and 25 ml of 1M CaCl2
5. JW1228-1 overnight culture prepared for P1 phage solution to be incubated until 11:55 on 10/15/12
