Growth in Bacteria

  • Bacterial Resistance(s)
    Ampicillin, 100 μg/mL

  • Growth instructions
    Due to the large size of this plasmid, it takes longer to grow the bacteria to obtain sufficient amount of DNA to work with. I normally grow the bacteria at 37C in LB for 24-36 hours before extracting the plasmid.
