Add 250uL of P1 buffer into each tube. Resuspend the cells thoroughly
 +
Add 250uL of P2 buffer (a base that denatures everything and causes cells to lyse). Gently mix up and down. Solution should become clearer.

Add 350uL of N3 buffer (an acid of pH ~5 that causes cell junk - including protein and chromosomal DNA - to precipitate, and leaves plasmids and other small molecules in solution). Slowly invert a few times, then shake.
 +
Spin in centrifuge at top speed for 5 minutes.
 +
Label blue columns with an alcohol-resistant lab pen.
 +
Pour liquid into columns, and place the columns into the centrifuge. Spin at full speed for 15 seconds.

Dump liquid out of the collectors under the columns (the DNA should be stuck to the white resin)
 +
Wash each column with 500 uL of PB buffer.
 +
Spin in centrifuge at full speed for 15 seconds, then flick out the liquid again.
 +
Wash with 750uL of PE buffer (washes the salts off the resins).

"'3/9/2013: PCA1 Performed

PCA1 Protocal
38 uL ddH2O
5 ul 10x expand buffer
5 ul 2mM dNTPs
1 ul oligo mixture (100uM total, mixture of oligos after combination of 100uM stocks)
0.75 ul Expand polymerase
Program (can run JCA/PCA1)
2 min initial denature at 94oC
30 sec denature at 94oC
30 sec anneal at 55oC [This should be the overlap temp of your oligos - vary as needed]
30 sec extension at 72oC
repeat 2-4 30 times total

"'3/12/2013 Regular Zymo Cleanup on PCA1

Zymo CleanUp
Add 180 uL of Zymo ADB buffer (brown bottle) to a 33uL or 50uL reaction.
Transfer into the Zymo column (small clear guys)
spin through, discard waste.
Add 200 uL of Zymo Wash Buffer (which is basically 70% ethanol)
spin through, discard waste.
Add 200 uL of Zymo Wash Buffer
spin through, discard waste.
spin for 90 seconds, full speed to dry.
elute with water into a fresh Eppendorf tube, use the same volume of water as the volume of the original reaction

Then perform PCA2:

''Amplification'''
Now, you need to do an amplification of the correct full-length chunks. Clean up the assembly reaction with a zymo column; don't bother running it on a gel - it'll be a smeary mess and won't really help you. Save the purified product in case this step fails! For the amplification reaction, do a normal phusion program with 1 ul of the cleaned up assembly reaction as template, and using the outermost oligos for the chunk. That is:
'''Recipe'''
1 ul each outer oligo (10 uM)
   -Dilute F/R oligos 1:10 from 100uM; in this case, oligo CCOMT1-12/CCOMT1-15
1 ul purified pca product
.5 ul phusion
10 ul 5x phusion buffer
5 ul 2mM dNTPs
32.5 ul H2O

Samples given to John to run the Program. 1:10 Oligo12/Oligo15 dilutions in small PCR tubes. Also stored purified PCA1 product in 4o box.

'''Program'''
2 min initial denature at 94oC
30 sec denature at 94oC
30 sec anneal at 60oC [This should be high, as your outer oligos now have a huge overlap with the correct product]
30 sec extension at 68oC
repeat 2-4 30 times total

"'3/14/2013 Gel from all class samples. Gel is of PCA2 products for various synthons. Lane1=His-tag part's IPCR product, Lane2=Molecular weight standards Rest of the lanes are PCA2's

Did not do colony PCR, so only added 5mL of media to culture tubes (most people had 4, I only had 1). Picked out white colony with pipette tip then placed tip into culture tube.

Again colony PCR did not work, but will analyze sequencing data from other people's colony PCR to see which one they will use. Looked at Megan's asfb-1 sequencing data, and it worked. Chris has been working on mine and is on the last ligation step (after PCA2), he will hopefully finish it at 17:00 today. Will then plate colonies tomorrow, on Thursday will hopefully be able to do colony PCR and will be able to send out colonies for sequencing. Will then hopefully get sequencing data on Friday, then can start Golden Gate of combining Megan's and I's asbf part together. For the time being just watched what other people were doing.

Pellet 2 mL saturated culture by spinning full speed, 30 seconds in a 2mL Microcentrifuge tube. (Did this by first doing 1mL, spin, get rid of supernatant, add 1mL again, then spin again)
Dump supernatant
Add 250uL of P1 buffer into each tube. Resuspend the cells thoroughly
Add 250uL of P2 buffer (a base that denatures everything and causes cells to lyse). Gently mix up and down. Solution should become clearer.
Add 350uL of N3 buffer (an acid of pH ~5 that causes cell junk - including protein and chromosomal DNA - to precipitate, and leaves plasmids and other small molecules in solution). Slowly invert a few times, then shake.
Spin in centrifuge at top speed for 5 minutes.
Label blue columns with an alcohol-resistant lab pen.
Pour liquid into columns, and place the columns into the centrifuge. Spin at full speed for 15 seconds.
Dump liquid out of the collectors under the columns (the DNA should be stuck to the white resin)
Wash each column with 500 uL of PB buffer.
Spin in centrifuge at full speed for 15 seconds, then flick out the liquid again.
Wash with 750uL of PE buffer (washes the salts off the resins).
Spin in centrifuge at full speed for 15 seconds and flick out liquid again.
Spin in centrifuge at full speed for 90 sec to dry off all water and ethanol.
Label new Microcentrifuge tubes and put columns in them.
Elute them by adding 50uL of water down the middle of the column (don't let it stick to the sides).
Spin in centrifuge at top speed for 30 seconds.
Take out columns and cap the tubes.
Clean up - note the P1 buffer is stored at 4degC and all the rest at room temperature.

Mapping

6.5µL H20
2µL plasmid
1µL NEB 4
0.5µL BsaI
Incubate at 37 on the thermocycler for 30 minutes

Run an analytical gel
(Put 2µL of loading dye into the 10µL of reaction sample; then loaded 10µL into gel)
Lane 5 D
Lane 6 B
Lane 14 (last lane) A

Take a picture of the gel
Calculate the expected fragment sizes
Are the calculated sizes consistent with the bands on the gel?
