Methods Three test tubes of 1.5ml tubes where labelled in the start of the experiment such as “Insert Digest,” “Vector Digest,” and “(-) control” as well as the group number. We then had to add the reagents described in the table (page 61 in lab manual) in the listed order. The entire tube was flicked and quick spin for about three seconds in the microcentrifuge before an hour of incubating at 37 degrees Celsius. After incubation, the tubes must be placed on ice while waiting to be run on gel to keep it safe at all time. For us to prepare for electrophoresis 2.8g of agarose powder was added to a 125ml flask then add 40ml 1x TAE/TBE Buffer (TAE: Tris Acetic acid EDTA; TBE: Tris Boric acid EDTA). The mixture was then heated in the microwave for about 45 seconds, while being vigilant for any liquid boil over and taking proper safety precautions upon removing the flask. Shaking the mixture at room temperature for 10 minutes is done to allow cooling before ethidium bromide addition (this activity was performed by the lab instructor). We noted that the ethidium bromide

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
