Extraction of Genomic DNA

1) Pick a single colony into 50 ul of H20.

Fresh colonies (grown that day) work best, but they can also come from 4 C.

2) Boil for 5 minutes.

1 ul of this can be used directly for PCR.

Best if used directly, but can also be stored at 4 C for a few days.

PCR Recipe (NEB Phusion Polymerase)

We use the Phusion polymerase because it has a low mutation rate. It also has a very fast extension time, which is useful for amplifying large constructs.
