5s lab organization training

5S Lab Organization Training

We provide a 5S Lab Organization Training program. Why 5S Lab Organization Training? I was first exposed to the 5S Lab Organization system while visiting the Invitrogen plant in Carlsbad. I immediately expressed an interest in implementing this in my...

genome editing right

Is there a Genome Editing Right?

Biohackers are using CRISPR technology to edit their own genomes. Is there a genome editing right or should CRISPR tools be controlled substances? The Facts Josiah Zayner, recently reported, that he attempted to edit his own genome using the CRISPR....

New Hires

As the group is completing its transition to Colorado State University, we have been building a new team. Since May, we have added five new hires to our team. Jenny Harding is a research coordinator. She joined us from the Department...

gene deletion & gene fusion protocol for yeast

Peccoud Lab Protocols: using PCR to delete a yeast gene or fuse a tag to a gene Introduction Yeast gene deletions or gene fusions (e.g. ORF with epitope tags or FP, promoter replacement, MS2 mRNA tagging) can be generated simply by...

C-terminal tag protocol: Adding a C-terminal tag to a gene

Peccoud Lab Protocol: designing primers to add a C-terminal tag to the (3′) end of a gene via PCR Introduction It is sometimes necessary to generate gene fusion strains with a C-terminal tag or promoter changes by intoducing a PCR amplicon...

N-terminal tag protocol: Adding an N-terminal tag to a gene

Peccoud Lab Protocol: designing primers to add an N-terminal tag to the 5′ end of a gene via PCR Introduction It is sometimes necessary to generate gene fusion strains with an N-terminal tag or promoter changes by introducing a PCR amplicon...

synthetic biology journal

New synthetic biology journal

Why a new synthetic biology journal? Most synthetic biology papers are not published in a synthetic biology journal. They are still published in non-specialized journals that span a broad spectrum of scientific specialties from bioinformatics to molecular biology and biotechnology. It...

Phenol-chloroform extraction & EtOH precipitation protocol

Peccoud Lab Protocol: purifying and/or concentrating DNA/RNA from various sources by phenol-chloroform extraction and ethanol precipitation. Introduction Sometimes it becomes necessary to concentrate your DNA/RNA or obtain purer DNA/RNA samples. If your DNA is resuspended in nucease-free water, you can...
