Alkane degradation

Unfortunately last week's attempts hadn't yielded any BioBricks making use of the 2-way ligation method. We thus decided to take another stab at the 3-way ligation procedure, according to the BioBrick Assembly Manual of Ginkgo Bioworks. The BioBrick numbers we tried to construct were: 014C, 020C, 405C, 327C and 304C.

The digestions were executed for 15 minutes at 37 degrees, and checked on 1% agarose gel:

1% agarose gel run at 100V for 1 hour. Of all samples 10 µL was loaded with 2 µL loadingbuffer. 2 µL was loaded of marker

Ligation

Following the digestion the products were ligated for 15 minutes at RT:

The ligations were performed in parallel: one batch using the NEB T4 DNA ligase and buffer, the other batch the Fermentas T4 DNA ligase and buffer. We hope to be able to discern the differences in efficiency between the two (if there are any). 1 uL of the ligation mixes was amplified using the universal primers to screen for pSB1C3 plasmids containing the proper ligated insert. The PCR mix was loaded onto 1% agarose gel:

1% agarose of colony PCR. Gel run at 90V for 50 minutes. Of all samples 5 µL was loaded with 1 µL loadingbuffer. 2.5 µL was loaded of SmartLadder

Transformation

The ligation products (19 uL) were used to transform 25 uL of commercially competent TOP10 cells (OneShot from Invitrogen) in accordance with the OneShot protocol. In order to test the background the digestion product of pSB1C3 was transformed (digestion control) as well as the ligation controls.
