Hi Pat:

I am posting this on the net because I think others might find it useful.


1. Pick colonies into 100 microliters of LB+antibiotic in a sterile 
	microtiter well.
2. Grow 2-4 hours at 37 C on shaker platform until turbid.
3. Add 2 microliters of the culture to 23 microliters of PCR reaction mix*.
4. PCR cycles:

	Denature	96 C for 6 min.
	25 Cycles of: 	96 C x 30 sec.
		     	50 C x 30 sec.
		     	72 C x 90 sec.

	Extend		72 C x 10 min.

5. Run 5 microliters of the reaction on a minigel.

*PCR reaction mix
per 2 microliters of culture add:

2.5 microliters 10x PCR buffer
17.5 microliters ddW
1 microliter dNTP mix**
0.125 microliters Taq polymerase
1 microliter (20pM) primer #1
1 microliter (20pM) primer #2

**this is made by diluting 10 mM stocks to 1.25 mM.
(e.g. 12.5 microliters each dNTP plus 50 microliters ddW).
