My Construction Files
My Sequencing Files

6/14 stuff about things

  • neuS clone C1: WE HAVE A WINNER!
  • miniprep party, D1/2/3/4
  • digestions didn't work too well mmmm going to sequence D1 and D4.
  • wbbL good plate, now incubating in shaker
  • cgctattcgcgctacctttg ready to order (middle sequencing of HPI/katG)

6/13 gloves, zymo, and ethanol oh my

  • a random day
  1. neuS digest used to transform n plate new colonies, since the old plate had only 3 people, and 1 which worked
  2. wbbL digest > new plate as well (old one had one colony and it was bad)
  3. yfbE put into shakey tubes
  • One of the neuS got miniprepped and the test digest looks good compared to test in ApE

  1. sending it for sequencing, eh.
  • Sequencing...
  1. Most (A1, A4, B1) sucked
  2. only A3 (HPI/katG) was decent. It might have an addition mutation of a G.
  3. A3 sent for reverse sequencing with G01001
  • Began redo-ing of HPI/katG-making, with a phase 1 PCR (the halves with a mutation)

Todo: Input parts in registry (yfbE?)

6/12 a bag full of grapes

  • PCR of yfbE...
  1. last night's thing, left in the freezer overnight. >FAIL<
  2. Did a new PCR -- looks good -- cells xform'd, plate is incubating.
  • neuS new xformation looks good. Three colonies now incubating.
  • wbbL (1) and HPI/katG (4)
  1. miniprepped and digest gel ran:

  1. HPI/katG 1,2,3,4 || wbbL || marker
  2. 1,2 might be okay.. that faint band is weird. 3 is great! 4 = wtf. wbbL = wtf too (should have two bands)
  3. decision to put 1,3,4,wbbL for sequencing.

6/11 austin's birthday

  • CAKE PARTY - great custard cake
  • I put the wbbL (1) and HPI/katG (4) colonies to incubate in LB broth.
  • neuS failed; no colonies :(((((((
    • redid ligation and xformation. hopefully there will be good results tmrw!
  • made like 20 LB-Agar/Amp plates - looks like our stock will last at least this week
  • researched nitric oxide (NO) and E. Coli - looks like soxRS is promising
  • also researched RBCs and how they deal with NO
  • plopped yfbE into PCR will do stuff with it tmrw

TO DO: enter yfbE into the registry

6/8 long day?

  • My PCR from last night (HPI/katG) was ROXOR! (left)
    • xformed some DH10B's. w00t w00t
  • Today's PCR was wbbL and neuS. ALSO ROXOR LOL (right)
    • xformed DH10B's.
  • made oligos for yfbE promoter thingy - will test with GFP and yeah! next week!
  • poured lotsa LB/agar+amp plates

6/7 we got benches

  1. well... getting the mutated PCR prod overnight. going to xform tmrw, hope it works!
  • programmed pcr on machine upstairs (#6)
  • we got computers
  • AGAR SUX, for future reference:
  1. nuke @ 20:00 min, 50% power.
  2. water bath in tap water for 5-10 min
  3. thaw the antibiotic right now!!
  4. FIRE for disinfecting
  5. pour that stuff. set 15 min, then marker it then bag

6/6 waiting for oligos

  • Made oligos and constructs with Vai, for getting wbbL and neuS from pJ23006-Bca9106
  • We tried the P_tet/RFP triple/double digest to make a composite part.
  1. FAIL
  2. probably source DNA is bad
  3. so much for that activity...

Other stuff: I won speed scrabble. even though I kind of cheated ish (didn't stop when Sam said stop"

6/5 coolbeans

  • Finalized oligos to order with Vai
  • Learned about LB broth-ing and LB/Agar plating. Thanks, Austin and Sam :)
  • Learned about the many composite part-making methods. Props 2 Chris
  1. prefix/suffix is weaksauce
  2. Use the AlwnI or BsaI or BglI, in conjuction with BglII or BamHI << (Did this today)
  3. DBBS
  4. 3 antibiotic; MIT endorses, used for BioBrick 1.0. Triple digest = bad
  5. 1-2-3 method << 'Our Goal' in a few weeks. should be leet.
  • Planned and vicariously did the making of P_tet+RFP brick (see Vai Notebook)

Other Notes: All oligos are being ordered, w00t w00t. Ayu 18:36, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

6/4 Training Finishes, Real Stuff Starts

  • Incubated some colonies
  • Miniprep'd already-been-incubated colonies (2)
  • Double digest of the 2 minipreps + parent plasmid
  • Colony PCR'd the incubated E.coli
  • Ran gel of the digest + PCR
  • >>> PCR product / Miniprep 1 / Parent Plasmid / Miniprep 2 / Ladder >>>
  • No bands for PCR or parent. Confused? Other ones look great.

As for me: Wiki acc works now.
Designing oligos and will compare with Vai. Ayu 18:19, 4 June 2007 (EDT)
