Floor Two

Yesterday's minipreps were tested by (i) checking their concentrations (ii) performing restriction digestion reactions with Xba1 and analysing them using gel electrophoresis.

After discussing the results, samples 2b2 and 3b1 were selected for further experiments.

Fig.Analysis of Restriction digest products using gel electrophoresis. Each sample was cut with Xba1 and as a control the uncut DNA was loaded next to it. Even numbered lanes contain cut DNA and odd lanes contain uncut controls

Outreach

Today we had a visit from Ben Thompson, senior public relations officer at the Society of Microbiology. He spoke to us about our project and iGEM in general. The interview would be available as a podcast for the general public at a later date.
