pGLO Bacterial Transformation 1920

End of Monday!

12/17 – Tuesday – Period 7 – Academic Study Hall
                                   Period 8
1: complete the Crime Scene Lab
2: Take out parents of our Drosophila cross so that they do not mate with the offspring!!
3: pGlo Transformation Lab- 
    a) obtain 2 micro test tubes, one labeled +pGlo and the other -pGlo
         Little p means plasmid – small circular DNA of E. Coli.
    b) Obtain your starter plates that you streaked yesterday that has been incubating for 24 hours at 37 degrees   
    c) Use a sterile loop and pick up a single colony and disperse into each tube, +pGLO and  -pGlo.
     d) I will add 10 micro liters of the pGlo plasmid (engineered sequence) to your +pGLO micro test tube.
    e) Incubate the tubes on ice for 10 minutes.
    f) label your lids.
    g) heat shock, add broth, pippete and streak in the appropriate plates.
    f) Stack up the plates, tape and label, then incubate for 24 hours.
12/17 – Tuesday – Homework:
1: Please make a second submission to last nights pGlo’s form.
2:  Please answer question in PGlo lab packet page 3 (questions 1 – 4) and page 12 (questions 1 – 4)
      THis lab Packet is due this Friday!      
3: Please complete form below based on Chapter 20 of your text:

Biotechnology Form 1 – 1920


End of Tuesday!

12/18 – Wednesday – Period  7/8 
1.  Observe the outcome of your agar test plates with E. Coli
2. Crime Scene Lab
3.  Drosophila Lab –
12/18 – Wednesday Homework
 Complete all questions on page 12 – 16 of the pGLO lab.
2: Carol to someone named Carol.
3.  Complete the DNA Fingerprinting Lab 
       Pages: 1,3,4 (Skip page 8 questions. Put a Y through page 8) 12, 18, 21, 22, 23, and 24.
 Christie and Morgan’s Tranformation Lab test plates:

                 -pGlo   –   LB

E. Coli that DID NOT HAVE THE pGlO plasmid cultured on the original LB agarose medium.  Bacteria grew as a biofilm instead of colonies as a result of too much of the E. Coli suspension added.
Proved Bacteria were viable.

 -pGlo – LB/AMP

E.Coli that DID NOT HAVE THE pGlO plasmid cultured  on LB agarose medium WITH AMPICILLIN.
There was no Bacteria colonies or biofilm.

Proved Bacteria are not ampicillin resistant.
      +pGlo – LB/Amp

E.Coli that DID HAVE THE pGlo plasmid cultured on the  LB agarose medium WITH AMPICILLIN. Bacteria grew as colonies.
Proved that all bacteria were transformed due to
Ampicillin resistance. 
 +pGlo – LB/Amp/Ara

E.Coli that did have the pGlo plasmid cultured on the LB ararose mediun WITH AMPICILLIN and AGAROSE.  Bacteria had the Green Glowing allele.
Proved that agarose regulates the pGlo gene.

1.    CASE:  NY23A-ER67-10299  DOCKET: 345-2788


Two different DNA samples were recovered in a horrific tragic traffic accident.  Apparently, an elderly women was traveling home alone from a family gathering in December and was injured.  The woman has been unconscious since the accident so there are no eyewitnesses.  The crack WHB CSI team has collected a small sample of DNA from the scene. They have performed the technique of PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) to amplify the signal and they have Sequenced the entire DNA fragments which is given below.  


Fragment 1:  Found on clothing of victim










Fragment 12:  Found on the victim’s site of trauma








Cut and paste each DNA segment into the Blast Website to identify the possible individuals that may be responsible for the crime.
