*Make Competent Cells
*Electroporate J37015, J37024 (from ligations) after having made competent cells
*Miniprep J37024, J37022 and J37025 (to check whether ligations were successful)
*Religation of J37018 ?
*Freeze 4G (S01656), J37020 (&J37018?)
*Testing (T9002, J37016 & J37020)

Maesuring the growth rate of the prey cells

  • JohnChattaway 04:50, 30 August 2006 (EDT)
  • We need to do this to work out the growth rate of the prey to give us an idea of the amounts of media we need for the chemostat.IGEM:IMPERIAL/2006/The Talk Page
  • Cultured fresh cells at 9.30
  • At 11.30 will re-culture to OD of 0.1 then test OD every 30mins untill OD 0.9 is reached

Measuring AHL production overnight

  • JohnChattaway 04:50, 30 August 2006 (EDT)
  • I will repeat tom's experiment with the frozen Prey Cells

Testing T9002, J37016 and J37020

  • Took 16mL cultures out of shaker after 2h at 11:20
  • OD measurements:
    • T9002 0.186
    • J37016 0.218
    • J37020 0.160
  • Dilute down to OD 0.1 into 25mL
  • Put 5mL tubes with AHL in shaker at 12:00 - to be taken out at 16:00


  • Part J37024 glass milk purified and electroporated.



  • With any luck this should be the final attempt
  • Ran along side the maxiprepped DNA
  • Loaded 10μL of each PCR reaction into the gel (double the amount of the previous attempts)
