Here is the feedback I got from iGEM HQ: Yes, we estimate there would be a total of ~3ng (on average) for a part sample in a well, and assuming a suspension with 10ul, there would be more than enough for PCR reactions. However, transformations are recommended over PCRing directly from the kit, because you can now store that part long term in glycerol ...


You probably could do PCR on that amount of DNA, but if you screw something up you don't get a second chance. Transforming bacteria and doing a miniprep turns your 3ng into a few micrograms, which is enough to tolerate a few mistakes.
