Help: Confused with primers in a PCR of a vector?

... familiar with what is going on. We recently ligated a gene into a pBS vector and popped it into some E. coli cells. We looked for positive clones via blue/white screening and isolated/purified the respective plasmid. Then, we carried out a PCR reaction of the pBS-gene (our clone). This ...

Cloning/Transformation question

... way to make negative control is to set up a ligation of your digested vector with water (or TE buffer/elution buffer you are using) in place of ... not work anymore. The other suggestion - transformation using wrong plasmid (another antibiotic resistance) - is also wrong and has no value.
