The second project involved PCR and gel purification to sequence the genome of various genomic DNA strands for a graduate student. Genomic mapping using the NCBI database was used to try and create tests for detecting various forms of E.coli, specifically E.coli CFT073, using PCR and gel electrophoresis.
