I am using the Clontech 2 hybrid system and its come time to check my
postitive colonies. The manual suggests doing a quick/crude plasmid prep
for each clone, then PCRing off that and then restricting the PCR product
using AluI and/or HaeIII to try and identify similar clones - thereby
cutting down on the amount of sequencing to be done.
I was wondering if there is a protocol for Yeast Colony PCR, like the one
we regularly use with bacteria, so that I can PCR my product directly
from a colony without having to go through the plasmid step? I have heard
that the problem tends to be getting the yeast open and also the genomic
Has anyone tried this/published anything on this anywhere?
Thanks for any help anyone can give me
