This is a quick and easy yeast colony PCR protocol that does not require zymolyase step.



  1. Step 1
  2. Step 2
    • Step 2 has some additional information that goes with it. i.e. Keep at 4°C.
  3. Step 3
    1. Step 3 has multiple sub-steps within it.
    2. Enumerate each of those.


  1. List troubleshooting tips here.
  2. You can also link to FAQs/tips provided by other sources such as the manufacturer or other websites.
  3. Anecdotal observations that might be of use to others can also be posted here.

Please sign your name to your note by adding ('''~~~~''') to the end of your tip.
