- Save time searching for cell facts such as cellular volume or concentration of ATP
- Finnzyme Primer Dimer Predictor
- Enter yours here see predicted dimers
- They have short but useful articles on lab technique and often include references. I am not a fan of all the advertising.
- See who sells compounds you want to buy. Will help you shop around & give more options when your default supplier shows a compound as being back-ordered.
- BenchFly: free science videos
- Sample video: sterile technique
- EcoSal !!subscription required!! (I don't have it at UW)
- an E. Coli & Salmonella reference website (originally, this info was published in books)
- RBS strength calculator
- Recomended by Amanda Smith via Rob Egbert
- probably accurate within an order of magnitude
- If you use the forward engineering mode, check your solution in the reverse engineering mode (include ~ 75 bp on either side of the start codon) and make sure it still agrees with it's solution.
- The sequence matters a lot! High translation is ~___. (If using the Elowitz RBS, the sequence between this part & the ATG matters!
- NanoDrop basics (nucleic acid concentration measurements)
- APE (A Plasmid Editor; free)
- Mendeley (free)
- InkScape (free)
- Can get beautiful color paletes from ColorBrewer
