1. Grow O/N culture.
2. Dilute culture 1/100 into 30 mLs LB, shake at 37¡C till the cell density
reaches 5x108 cells per mL (3-4 hours).
3. Add fresh Mitomycin C to a concentration of 2 µg/mL.
4. Shake at 37¡C until lysis is visible (generally O/N).
5. Spin out cell debris (6000 rpm, 15 mins), transfer supernatant to a new tube.
6. Pellet phage particles (17000 rpm, 120 mins).
7. Resuspend phage in 1/10th volume of PBS (3 mLs).
8. To 3 mLs of PBS add 2 µl DEPC, 10 µl 10% SDS, 50 µl 2M Tris-HCl, 0.5 M EDTA
(pH 8.0). Leave at 65¡C for 15 mins.
9. Add 50 µl KCl, incubate on ice for 1 hour.
10. Pellet protein/SDS complex by spinning 15 mins in a microfuge (13000g).
11. Precipitate DNA by adding 2 volumes of ethanol and incubating at -70¡C for
20 mins or overnight at 4¡C.
12. Spin 15 mins in microfuge. Dry and resuspend pellet in 200 µl 10 mM
Tris-HCl (pH 8.0).
13.Treat the isolated DNA with proteinase K to remove any associated phage
head proteins (add 3 µls 20 mg/mL proteinase K and leave at 37¡C for 30 mins).
14. Extract once with phenol/chloroform/isoamyl alcohol (25:24:1).
15. Ethanol precipitate (add 1/10th volume 3 M Na acetate and two new volumes
of ethanol, incubate as above).
16. Spin, dry and resuspend the pellet in 300 µl H2O.
17. For sequencing 1 µg of DNA in 6 µl is required.
