Day 11 summary Cheyeanne Perez
Today I really did not do much. However I did help set up a digestion. A digestion is when enzymes, and the proper buffers are added to the DNA that has had a piece of DNA already removed and replaced. Then it is placed in a pcr machine and run for as long as required. This process is used to tell if your piece of DNA is oriented in the right direction. Also I helped run a DNA gel earlier this morning. We used a electrophoresis apparatus along with the DNA that needed to be ran through the gel. After it was finished we stained it with ethidium bromide and took pictures of it to see the bands of DNA using ultra violet light.
