  • The inserts for TEV semm to be right in the most cases, but the backbone has mutated and it should be cloned into a new pSB1C3 with new same restriction enzymes (XbaI+AgeI)!
  • The forward sequencing of CaMV p35S is right but the analytical digestion is wrong. Maybe further parts are downstream of the promoter?! Reverse sequencing should be performed for further analysis.
