Run Notes


I ran two PCRs to amplify the HmgR ORF: one with Buffer Q and the other without. I made a master mix, then aliquotted 40 μl to each of two tubes. I then added 10 μl Buffer Q to one and the same volume of water to the other. Used the reaction conditions as written. Gel results here.


I ran one PCR to amplify the HmgR ORF with buffer Q. I just made the reaction as in the protocol and ran with the conditions written above.
