MC1061 and MG1655 colonies transformed with helpers were picked from plates and inoculated and and incubated in proper medium.

PCR from colony (MG1655 and MC1061) using synthesized primers to check them and to verify a negative control for integration.

August, 4th

48° Bio-Lab - Glycerol stocks for MC1061 and MG1655 strains transformed with pAH123 or <partinfo>BBa_J72008</partinfo> helper plasmids.
