<b>Goal:</b> Digest and extract out the E0-gfp and ligate after the R0-promoter, into that pre-cut plasmid.

*See [[IGEM:Harvard/2006/DNA_nanostructures|iGEM 2006 Page]] for more info

1. Miniprepped the 3 BioBricks Plasmids (according to [http://openwetware.org/wiki/Miniprep/Qiagen_kit standard protocol])
 
*Made glycerol stocks of 1mL of the cultures from each transformant:
 
  666.6uL of 50% glycerol (to give 20% glycerol total)
 
  1mL of transformant culture
 
  
2. Double digested the 2 R0 (lac promoter) and 2 E0 (gfp) samples
+
==iGEM 2006 Notebook==
*NB: Due to the NanoSpec reading out negative DNA concentrations, we proceeded with an arbitrary amount of transformed DNA for the digests.
+
<calendar>
*Digested with SpeI and PstI (NEBuffer 2) for R0, XbaI and PstI (NEBuffer 3) for E0, with the following protocol:

  DIGEST PROTOCOL
+
<calendar>
  ----------------
+
name=IGEM:Harvard/2006/DNA_nanostructures/Notebook
  8uL miniprepped DNA
+
date=2006/10/01
  2.5uL 10x NEBuffer
+
view=threemonths
  2.5uL 10x (diluted 1:10 from the 100x stock) BSA
+
format=%name/%year-%month-%day
  1uL enzyme 1 (diluted 1:2 on Parafilm from the stock, of which we would have needed 0.5uL)
+
weekstart=7
  1uL enzyme2 (1:2)
+
</calendar>
  10uL dH2O
 
  ----------------
 
  For a TOTAL VOLUME of 25 uL
 
  Incubated 1 hr @ 37%degC
 
  
*Deactivated the enzymes by placing on 80%deg heat block for 15 min.
 
  
3. Phosphatasing of 2 R0 samples to prevent self-ligation
 
*Added 1 unit (1uL of 1:10 dilution from the 10,000U/mL stock, of which we would have needed 0.1uL) of CIP (Calf Intestine Phosphatase) to the 2 R0 reactions.
 
*Incubated at 37%deg for 1hr.
 
  
4. Ran R0 and E0 samples on gel to separate out the gfp from the E0-plasmid
+
==Notebook==
* Ran at 130V for ~45 min.

5. Gel extracted R0 plasmid (~2.1 kb, linearized by digestion) and E0 gfp fragment (~0.9kb)
+
<calendar>
*Cut out the 1 bright E0 0.9kb band and the 2 bright R0 2.2kb bands

*Froze overnight at -20%deg.
 
  
==Tu 6.13.06==
 
1. Picked Colonies of Existing BioBrick Transformants
 
*Picked and numbered:
 
  3 colonies of E7,
 
  2 colonies of E0,
 
  2 colonies of R0.
 
*Grew each colony in 5mL LB + 5uL of 50mg/mL Amp (1:100 dilution).
 
  
2. Ran Gel of DNA Nanostructures
 
*Ran 2% agarose gel of the nanostructure reaction and the 2 controls for ~40 min at 130V.  (NB: Only left four lanes are ours.)

1. Folded DNA Nanostructures Using Shawn's Pre-designed Oligo Staples and Scaffold ssDNA
 
*Three reactions below were mixed according to [http://openwetware.org/wiki/Folding_DNA_nanostructures  given protocol].
 
oligos + scaffold
 
-oligos
 
-scaffold
 
 
2. Transformed Bacteria with Existing BioBrick Plasmids
 
*Transformed each BioBrick plasmid below into OneShot Top10 competent cells (Invitrogen) according to the following protocol.
 
  R0010 (lac operon promoter),
 
  E7104 (T4 promoter + gfp),
 
  and E0241 (gfp).
 
 
===Top10 Transformation===
 
  Thaw cells; aliquot out ~30uL per transformation.
 
  Add desired amount of plasmid DNA (1 uL in this case?) to cells and leave on ice for 30 min.
 
  Heat shock at 37&degC for 30 sec in a heating block. 
 
  Ice for 2 min.
 
  Shake in 37%deg incubator for 1 hr.
 
  Pour onto plates with the required antibiotic (carbinomycin in this case); spread with beads or plate spreader.
 
  Incubate plates in 37%deg incubator overnight.
