--Use 20 tips on MP20! Diluted 3 microliter in 50 microliter water. --want to do transformations
--plating on LB agar -> transposed

Having a layout conducive to multichannel pipetting is much more important than "saving wells"
Need to put > 1.5 mL of LB agar into blocks, otherwise the agar shrinks
The robot shouldn't dip into the well so much when pipetting antiobiotics. Currently, it is touching the walls of the well and might be picking up other antibiotics and cross contaminating the stock solutions

Plated 20µL of culture, this amount seems to work quite well on the 24 well agar LB plates
Some righty liquid cultures didn't grow. We need to redo this alongside lefty cultures in 24 well liquid plates with >2 mL of culture

Did 2ab reaction today.
Cut with enzymes, then put in ligase mix.
Transformed into Lefty and Righty cells and tomorrow we will pick 4 clones each and put into 2 96-well genetix plates filled with 8% glycerol LB. After letting them grow for a while, use the pin tool to spot onto big petri dishes. 1 LB only, 1 KCA (to check for cotransformations)
