Checked the DNA from yesterday with Anthony. To do this we made a gel. When you add the DNA and the dye (which is one fifth of the volume of the DNA solution) you have to ensure that the pipette tip is not held up too highly, resulting in the dye not landing in the well, and not to deeply, where the gel will be punctured.
Ant's Findings and Questions
Anthony Salvagno: Great job setting the gel up. I imaged it and here are your results:
Also I think it would be good of you to label that picture I uploaded (of today's gel). This way you can easily describe to someone exactly what they are looking at. You don't need to do anything fancy, but a detail in here of what the lanes are and important bands (for instance the bright band in the ladder is 3kb) would be a good practice. Anyways good job Brian and I'm sorry this didn't work out.
