This morning I helped make plates and I ran a gel of my PCR from yesterday. This PCR was using the M13 F/R primers that come with the TOPO Blunt cloning kit. As we had unfortunatley expected, there was no amplification, indicating once again that we do not have any inserts in our TOPO Blunt vectors. Raida and Henry are working on designing another PCR reaction to try to amplify malE, malE31, malESSdel and malE31SSdel out of our plasmid DNA and we will proceed from there.

Chris miniprepped my colonies of malE and malE31 with the hypothetical XbaI and SpeI restriction sites. Because C2 was the only one that looked good from my colony PCR yesterday, I digested this with XbaI and SpeI again and ran this on a 1% agarose gel.

This afternoon I also helped Chris and Raida PCR Purify some of their reactions from last week (CpxP and malESSdel). I also edited some sponsorship letters and worked on drafting up letters for the faculties of Kenesiology and Engineering.
