Lab work for 8/9/2012

  • I am going to attempt the extraction of DNA from some samples using the EDNA extraction kit and protocol. If this is successful I will go on to run a PCR and a Gel.

I am using 4 samples of the Diamond Doves, as they are being caught again in 4 weeks so it is OK if they don't work.

Begin Lab work

Transferred samples to 0.5mL tubes:

  • 6AMC
  • L3#29
  • 8AMC
  • L3#21

Carried out extraction according to protocol for tissue EDNA hispex kit.

During the addition of the first solutions (1a & 1b) I used the pipette tip to disturb the blood. This pulled some of the fibres out from the paper that the blood was on. I don't think that this should hurt the reaction.

Primer prep:

  • 2550F - 5´-GTTACTGATTCGTCTACGAGA-3´

32.5nm (0.21mg) Tm=51.2C Added 325ul water to make up a 100uM/L stock soln (Taken from http://www.protocol-online.org/biology-forums/posts/23706.html)

  • 2718R - 5´-ATTGAAATGATCCAGTGCTTG-3´

32.6nm Tm=51.3C Added 326ul water

Took 10ul of Primer and added to 90ul water to make a 10uM/L working solution.
