Edvotek Classic AP Biplogy Lab. In this experiment, your students will develop an understanding of bacterial transformation by plasmid DNA by introducing an opportunity to observe an acquired phenotypic trait of the transformed bacterial cells. The presence of blue bacterial colonies visually demonstrates the expression of a specific gene for the Lac+ phenotype.
No IPTG used in this experiment.
