  • Perform BsmBI/ T4 ligase mediated assembly
  • BsmBI cuts the DNA fragments and creates complementary overhangs.
  • Complementary sticky ends anneal via base pairing.
  • T4 ligase seals gaps in the phosphodiester DNA backbone.
Reagent Vol. Thermal cycling
  • [45°C, 2 min.; 16°C 5 min.] x25

Could not perform bacterial transformation because SOC medium was in freezer. Vi performed BsmBI/T4 ligase and bacterial transformation for BL01 and hPCD and there were no colonies on plates.
