Julie's Protocols

A warning: these all work for me, but molecular biology is a mysterious thing, so they may not work for you! Please email me at jmaresca (at) mit (dot) edu if you have a question or a problem. Thanks.

Standard PCR reactions (for normal amplification and for sequencing).

Use of the Sonicator for small bacterial samples.

Reverse-phase HPLC analysis of carotenoids and (bacterio)chlorophylls.
