I and another lab worker are working on the cloning of two nuclear-
encoded chloroplast factors from Euglena Gracilis. We are now in the
process of comparing our genes to those of other plants. The first step
is doing a Southeragainst other plant's genomic DNAs. We have selected
arabidopsis and chlamydamonas. Fortunately, a local lab on campus has
offered us some arabidopsis DNA.
We are requesting some genomic DNA from chlamydamonas for a Southern.
We only anticipate needing enough DNA for 2-3 lanes, as our experiment will
be simple. We would greatly appreciate any lab that would be willing to
donate this small amount of DNA. Thanks a lot in advance! :)
