A Brief Description of What We Will Do

The Plasmid preparation process | The Plasmid Preparation Miniprep Gallery

A Brief of what we did:

The plasmids that contained the pBAD and Lysis genes that were prepared were extracted from the bacteria cultures. The unwanted protein around the DNA was then removed. After that the DNA was cleansed of any remaining salt. The plasmids were then cut at certain points such that only the required gene could be extracted. These cut parts were prepared for gel electrophoresis.
