Cloning of the OmcF gene

  • On Tuesdays, we grew the E.coli that we had received from the Parts Registry; having ordered it the previous Tuesday. This part was vector psB2K3 which contained the promoter BBa_I0500. We plated the bacteria on KanR LB media.
  • On Wednesday we transferred the bacterial cultures into liquid LB media to increase the amount of bacteria to use for extracting the plasmid out again.
  • On Thursday, we used the GeneJet Plasmid Miniprep Kit to extract our plasmid DNA from the E.coli that we grew on Tuesday and Wednesday
  • We ran an agrose to gel to verify the existence of plasmid DNA. We used 5 wells in the gel. In wells 1-4 we placed 5 mcL each of our purified plasmid DNA, samples A-D respectively. In well 5 we placed 2 mcL of 100 bp ladder.

Our Results: Each prepared plasmid DNA sample showed faint but usable quality DNA.
