>directly from E. coli colonies. Can the same protocol used for the phage DNA be used directly for amplification of DNA from these colonies? If not, could you suggest a publication where I could find a suitable protocol?
Just pick your colony, streak on a sector plate and inoculate an Eppendorf containing your PCR mix. A 3' 94 deg heating step before starting cycling is enough to denature the DNA.
