Today s objective

Today’s Objective

To Isolate High Quality Genomic DNA from Emiliania huxleyi

Emiliania huxleyi

Emiliania Huxleyi

  • Unicellular eukaryotic marine algae

  • Calcium carbonate coccosphere

  • Blooms of > 100,000 sq kilometers

What do we need to do to isolate genomic dna

What do we need to do to isolate genomic DNA?

Techniques theoretical basis

Techniques/Theoretical Basis

Breaking open E. huxleyi cells

  • SDS

  • Proteinase K

Techniques theoretical basis1

Techniques/Theoretical Basis

Removal of other Cellular Macromolecules

  • CTAB-cetyltrimethylammonium bromide

  • NaCl

  • Chloroform/isoamyl Extraction

Techniques theoretical basis2

Techniques/Theoretical Basis

Cesium Chloride Gradient

  • Used to obtain highly pure DNA

  • DNA in gradient subjected to centrifugal force of 105,000 xg

  • DNA forms band in gradient at its boyant density

Techniques theoretical basis3

Techniques/Theoretical Basis

Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Analysis of Nucleic Acids

  • Nucleic acids absorb light at 260 nm

  • Proteins absorb light at 280 nm

  • Purity of Nucleic Acid indicated by A260/A280

  • Pure DNA A260/A280 = 1.6-1.8

Next week

Next Week

  • Quantitate amount of DNA isolated

  • Determine the Purity

  • Assess the Integrity

  • Set Up Restriction Digest
