Isolated plasmid DNA from cultures inoculated on 20120409 (p16RK3-C) & 20120410 (p16RK3-A). These cultures finally produced bacteria. Slow growth was likely due to anaerobic conditions (sealed 15mL conical tubes) and slow agitation (on a rocker instead of a shaker). Isolated plasmid DNA using Qiagen Mini Prep Spin Kit according to manufacturer’s protocol. Eluted plasmid DNA with 30uL of Buffer EB and quantified on Roberts Lab NanoDrop1000.
p16RK3-A = 134.2ng/uL
p16RK3-C = 36.4ng/uL
