Things we did today

Wetlab work

Verification of transformants

EtBr stained 2% agarose gel ran at 95V for 1 hour. Ten microliters of PCR product were loaded into each lane.
  • Colony PCR of restreak plates
  • Bands ~600bp. Plasmid did not cut.
EtBr stained 2% agarose gel ran at 60V for 2 hours. Thirty microliters of RE digested plasmid were loaded into each lane.
  • RE digest of plasmid w/ EcoRI and PstI
  • RE digest of prpgt, rgt1 plasmids with EcoRI and PstI
  • Ran RE digests on gel
  • Bands did not correspond to what was supposedly loaded
  • PCR of prpgt #5, 7, 11, nrsg #6, rgt #1
  • Overnight RE digest of devices with EcoRI and PstI and rgt#1 with XbaI and PstI

Triparental Conjugation

Triparental conjugation plates. RP1, BB-pRL harboring E. coli and Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 plated on 5% LB + BG-11 and incubated for 60 hours at 37C with 2% CO2
  • Restreaked 5%LB+BG-11 plates onto BG-11+sp2.5+sm2.5 plates for isolation of cyanos
  • Inoculated BG-11+sp2.5+sm2.5 liquid media with conjugated E. coli/cyanos
  • Incubated at 37C with 2% CO2 for 11 days. Liquid cultures were shaken at 100 rpm also.
