BBa_katE colony screening
Since my overnight growth did not have GFP and the miniprep with digest came up with three bands (~3kb, ~9kb, ~2.1kb) it is likely that there has been some sort of self-ligation or DNA contamination. However, since the petridish show GFP colonies and I can verify these under the microscope I picked colonies and screened them under the microscope
For two labelled eppendorf tubes
I found one colony showing good GFP generation the other showed no GFP. I selected the GFP and pulled out the remaining 5µl from the tube and grew this overnight.
