Default How to determine the size of the insert in the vector.

Hi all,

I am working with PCC1BAC vector which contains my insert. I have sent the BAC DNA to sequencing to determine the size of the insert. I have got back the sequencing results and using serial cloner software I'm trying to determine the insert size. Can anyone help me with this.

The pCC1BAC vectors are all 8,128 bases no matter the linearizing nuclease:

Otherwise digest the clone with the enzyme NotI as it cuts ~300 bases either side of the insertion site. Will generate a ~7.5 kb vector band and at least one insert band depending on the insert sequence and NotI recognition sites. Run on a 0.7-1.0% agarose gel, stain, photograph, measure migration using a ruler and suitable sizing program.
