Annealing buffer (10X)
Adjusted pH to 8.
To prep 1M NaCl, added 11.7g NaCl to 200ml H2O. Felt like chemistry class again figuring this out.
0.2 L solution * 1 mole NaCl/1 L solution = 0.2 moles NaCl
0.2 moles NaCl * 58.5 g NaCl/1 mole = 11.7g NaCl
where 58.5 is the molecular weight of NaCl.
All oligos were ordered at concentration of 200uM so I could follow recommended prep:
In thermocycler, incubated at 97.5C for 2.5 minutes, then step down 3C every minute until reached 21C (95 - 92 - 89 … 21).
Used all 48 oligos provided by Peterson et al. (2012). Made two tubes of the common P2 adapter.
Stopped here today, but planning for adapter ligation. Need to make working stocks. Calculate concentration using copy of their ligation molarity calculator worksheet
To determine working stock concentration, need “average distance between sites for each enzyme”. This comes from Andrew’s Bioanalyzer results for single digest of each enzyme:
|Enzyme||Sample||Average size [bp]|
Average distance between sites for each enzyme is 2247.5 bp for NlaIII and 378.5 bp for MluCl.
Inputting these values into the ligation molarity calculator worksheet with an input DNA of 0.001 ug (1 ng total per sample from Qubit) gives input of 0.17 ul (P1) and 1.00 ul (P2) annealed adapter stocks to make working adapter solution.
