Can someone link me to resources on the efficiency of sticky end ligation?

The best resource for troubleshooting ligations I found (and use frequently) is this NEB page. That is assuming you've already referred to the instructions provided with the enzyme you're using. In ...

Can Bacteria Repair Dephosphorylated Plasmids?

As per WYSIWYG's suggestion, I tried the digest and dephosphorylation again with SalI and ran a gel. The gel showed that SalI was less than ideal at cutting this plasmid. As you can see, the most ...

Freezing after restriction digest

From my experience I would say that it is no problem to freeze the digested DNA, when the enzyme is inactivated (even when not, for this time period I wouldn't expect much damage). However, if ...

Separate DNA fragments with very different size (oligo and lambda-DNA)

A spin column might work for your purposes since you can do multiple rounds of binding if your volume is too large to bind in a single pass, but for DNA of that size a lot will be irreversibly stuck ...

Ligation without purifying insert

Thanks all for your comments guys. I tried purifying using PCR purification kit. I could recover 120 ng of purified fragment from 500 ng. It is ok for my further work.

What happens after the purification step in Hi-C sequencing?

So, after the restriction digestion, the sample consists of DNA fragments with 5' overhangs. These are filled in by Klenow DNA polymerase, adding biotin-dCTP to both ends of each fragment. Then the ...

Can someone link me to resources on the efficiency of sticky end ligation?

To measure the frequency of indels at the ligation site you can use a vector with a unique restriction site in the lacZ gene. With a colorimetric assay you can count the number of white cfu. Perfect ...
