  • Plan for next two weeks:
    • After primers arrive, Winnie starts to conduct PCR to amplify GFP part and RFP part.
    • Then, Qing ligates both sides together.
    • Sylvia conducts deletion PCR to delete the enzyme cutting site between two promoters and also constructs other trials of overlapping promoters.
