Archiving the tools you make this term: You and your fellow lab mates are doing real research. The constructs and strains you are making will certainly be of use to the people in Profs. Laub and Newman’s labs and the better you archive your materials, the easier it will be for someone to follow up with your work and credit you for it! In addition, by now you all now know that: 1) transforming a strain with a plasmid and verifying the plasmid is a procedure that takes several days and 2) cloning a gene is a procedure that can take several weeks. If after making these strains and plasmids you do not make an archival stock, the time and money you spent performing these tasks is essentially wasted. If those justifications aren’t motivation enough for you, how well you maintain your archives will also be a significant factor in your final grade! Thus, archiving the strain and plasmids you construct this term is an incredibly important part of your responsibilities as a 7.13 student. Because this is so important, we will check your archive periodically throughout the term.
