5/22 More PCR

After looking at the results from the previous gel we ran, we think some of the DNA we are using might be degrading. We redid a chelex extraction with cereals A and B. Then, we ran PCR with the new DNA from those two cereals, a negative control (just the primers), and a positive control … Continue reading 5/22 More PCR

4/25 Analyzing GMO Gradient Reactions/Making Master Mix

First, we reviewed the gel results of the GMO primer gradient reactions, which was pretty successful. Even though the negative control was contaminated, there was good amplification in the higher temperature reactions. To fix the issue with the contaminated negative control, we will use new water in our future reactions. We've concluded that Cereal D … Continue reading 4/25 Analyzing GMO Gradient Reactions/Making Master Mix
