Ligation of CMV + MV9

 Part Concentration CMV (insert) 15.535 ng/μL MV9 (vector) 20.838 ng/μL

Calculations

ng insert = bp insert/bp vector * 2 * 50
ng insert = 588/4611 * 2 *50 = 12.75211 ng

μL insert = ng insert/concentration insert
μL insert = 12.75211/15.535 = .82μL

μL vector = 50 ng/concentration vector
μL vector = 50/20.838 = 2.4 μL

Bacterial Transformation of CMV Promoter + MV9

• Warm 100 μg/mL Amp agar plate at 37°C
• Thaw fresh tube of DH5α Turbo cells on ice
• Add 30 μL of DH5α Turbo Cells to DNA + dH2O.
• This was also done for transformation of part KAH126
• Incubate cells + DNA on ice for 5 minutes.
• Label pre-warmed plate.
• Transfer cells + DNA onto agar.
