qPCR – Jake’s O.lurida ctenidia DNased RNA (Control Samples)

Ran qPCR on DNased RNA from earlier today to assess whether there was any residual gDNA after the DNase treatment with Oly_Actin_F/R primers (SR IDs: 1505, 1504).

Used 1μL from all templates.

All samples were run in duplicate.

Positive control was HL1 O.lurida DNA isolated by Jake on 20150323.

Cycling params:

  • 95C – 2.5mins

  • 40 cycles of:

    • 95C – 10s

    • 60C – 20s

  • Melt curve

Positive control comes up around cycle ~21.

No amplification in the no template controls.

Four wells of the DNased RNA samples exhibit amplification (B5, C10, C12, D3), however each respective replicate does not. Will re-test these four samples (NC1, SC1, SC2, SC4).
