Genomic DNA extraction from Bacillus subtilis strain ATCC 6633


The aim of this experiment was to extract genomic DNA from Bacillus subtilis strain ATCC 6633. This strain produces the subtilin genes, required for our Subtilin Production and Immunity BioBricks as well as the Quorum sensor biobrick designed by Team Newcastle 2008.

Materials and methods

  • ara forward and reverse control primers
  • Pipettes
  • Universal tubes
  • Eppendorf tubes
  • Centrifuge
  • PCR
  • Gel electrophoresis


Please refer to: DNA extraction of Bacillus subtilis for materials required and protocol.


Results were as expected see:




Today we also continued with our research on filamentous cells which will act as reinforcing fibres in the crack.
