Studying BSc Biomedical Science at Imperial College London.

I have several years worth of experience in

web development (HTML, PHP, CSS, JS, SQL; both raw and using frameworks jQuery and Smarty)

and programming (Windows/C++, Android/Java, Flash/AS3)

as well as some hobbyist experience in design (Inkscape, GIMP, Autodesk 3D).

Active member of the London Hackspace Biohackers whenever time permits; I also love tweaking and meddling but rarely find the time these days (in other words, hacking). Also, laptops don't permit for meddling a lot unfortunately.

comment What can cause incompatible sticky ends to be ligated?
We actually digested EcoRI and XmaI twice using different buffers (B and MC) to see which worked better, but the results were pretty identical (and two bands easily distinguishable) so it seems that was fine. I analysed 12 of the 22 cultures on my plate, and of those 12, 4 (33%) carried the short re-ligated variant B. That seems a lot to me for a rare event.

Thanks for the hint. I added those and rewrote the description a bit, hopefully that's clearer now.

Incomplete digestion at what point do you mean? If the backbone (p1) was incompletely digested before the ligation, it should have produced a larger band than the one which I excised from the gel. If the analytical digest after ligation was incomplete, I would expect to see at least faint bands in addition to the one clear band corresponding to the backbone size.
