Protocol Guide for the N. crassa Yeast Artificial Chromosome Library Protocol guide for the N. crassa yeast artificial chromosome library. Includes: Chromosome Walking; Hybridization screening of the YAC library; YAC restriction mapping and contig building; Preparation of chromosomal DNA plugs of YAC clones; Partial restriction enzyme digestion of YAC DNA plugs; Using CHEF gel analysis to resolve YAC clones; Southern Hybridization; Isolation of terminal restriction fragments from cloned DNA inserts in YAC clones; etc.
Small Scale DNA Preps for Neurospora crassa Protocol DNA isolation method yields an average of 0.6 micrograms of genomic DNA that is suitable for Southern analysis or PCR. Starting with fresh mycelium, 20 to 40 samples can be processed in approximately two hours. Better yields (about 5 micrograms) may be obtained by suspending approximately 100 microliters of ground lyophilized mycelium in 500 microliters of isolation buffer and following the protocol.
