Ya, guys and gals, are too sophisticated for your own good - kinda hard to
be a-keeping track of them supercoils <G>. The easy way to "fix" the nicked
DNA is to reinoculate (yes, and retransform if needed) the e. coli and
isolate the DNA, right way this time, so it is not nicked. Good luck with
transfection with DNA ligated in presence of EtBr.
