Hi all
I did transformation with E coli then I did cell cultre.... miniprep...restriction enzyme digest then 1% agarose gel electrophoresis
as you have seen in the gel i repeated this experiment two time one of them duplicate for two insert with same plasmid but I got a strange result as I enclosed in the photo

Looks like some nicely supercoiled pBS...it happens from time to time. The other option is re-arranged plasmid which can be seen if you have an unstable backbone....you end up keeping the ori and selection marker and lose the rest.
