Re-transforming-- Is re-sequencing necessary? - (Jul/09/2005 )
I have a construct that is sequenced and in the form of a glycerol stock. I'm having problems growing the glycerol stock for maxi preps. I believe something is wrong with the glycerol stock.
I am thinking of re-transforming the construct into DH5-alpha, plating and then making a new stock.
My question: If I were to re-tranform, then plate with a selective antibiotic, then pick a colony and grow it up, would I need to re-sequence the construct?
I would, just to be sure you know?
In short, re-sequence... it may save you grief on down the line.
