Taking the liquid cultures started yesterday and performing a plasmid miniprep on them, followed by DNA quantification, restriction digest, and gel electrophoresis to validate.

Plasmid Miniprep

Kit used: Sigma GenElute Plasmid Miniprep

None of the colonies contain the insert. Debating whether to try again with new colonies or try another approach... other option would be to PCR-amplify the two homology arms, adding restriction enzyme cut sites, then doing standard biobrick cloning to place the homology arms and DBN006 fragment into v0120 plasmid.
