We built our constructs from pre-made biobrick parts. Our overall conclusion is that 3A assembly is generally inefficient, and an insufficient method for adding small parts (such as a terminator) to a larger construction within pSB1C3. We learned that ratios were extremely important in the process of 3A Assembly, and we made a summary sheet of the equations we used in pre-digest and pre-ligation that accounts for digest dilution and amount needed to ensure results are seen on a gel, not just ligation ratios. We wished we used gibson assembly.
