******Oligos are stored at 100 uM: dilute them to 10 uM*******

Colony PCR

  1. Create PCR mixture.
    • 21.8uL
    • 2.5uL or 10X thermol pol buffer
    • 0.5uL dNTPs (10mM)
    • 0.1uL Taq
    • 0.5uL Forward primer (10uM)
    • 0.5uL Reverse primer (10uM)
  2. Add mixture to PCR tube.
  3. Pick colony and add to tube and then streak an "X" on a plate while making a map of which colony is where.
  4. On the PCR machine use the "JED Colony" program and change the 72C cycle such that it matches the time needed to transcribe your product. Taq goes at about 1kb/minute.

PCR Prep (Extend Kit)

  1. 36.25 ul water
  2. 5 ul Expand tube "2" buffer
  3. 5 ul dNTP
  4. 1 ul 10 uM oligo1
  5. 1 ul 10 uM oligo2
  6. 1 ul DNA template
  7. .75 ul Expand tube "1" polymerase

50 ul total volume

Expand reagents are in Chris Anderson's -20 stuff
Combine in PCR tube.


To make 1ul oligo at correct concentration, take 1ul oligo and 9ul water, combine, transfer 1ul of solution to PCR tube

Keep polymerase on ice at all times

39 ul water can be used in place of 38.5ul water


PCR Prep (Phusion Kit)

  1. Create PCR mixture
    • 10 uL 5x Buffer
    • 1uL dNTP (10mM)
    • 0.5uL Phusions (polymerase)
    • 1uL oligo 1 (10uL)
    • 1uL oligo 2 (10uL)
    • 1uL DNA Template
  2. Run in PCR machine

Keep polymerase on ice at all times
