A second commonly used technique for plasmid isolation, following lysis of bacteria, is when the DNA is immobilized on a glass particle support, where it can be washed free of contaminants and then the purified DNA is eluted.
Students learn an alternative technique for plasmid purification, utilizing a DNA binding solid support to purify the DNA from a bacterial lysis.
- Teaches bacterial lysis
- Teaches solid phase DNA purification
