      I am trying to construct restriction map with following data..

      E cor1——–2

      Ecor 1+Asp 1…..1.6,.4

      Asp 1….0.9,2.1,2.4,3.6.

      I am trying to make linear map.Can anyone help?

      your data looks a bit ropey, I’m assuming that the numbers are lengths of fragments in terms of bases.

      How have you got more fragments with a single Asp1 digest than your double digest?

      Also shouldn’t each digest total fragment lengths add up to the same number?

      Yeah if it would have been same length then it would have been easy to make map….that’s what is confusing me.

      Isolated gene from an EcoR I digest contains a single Asp 1 restriction site but no other restriction sites.The gene is inserted into a plasmid digested with Ecor 1 and the plasmid with the insert selected,grown up and plasmid isolated.A probe prepared by labeling the original gene is used to analyze southern blots of three different restriction digest.prepare a map of the insert region containing the gene and explain southern blot data?

      Asp 1—–3.6,2.4,2.1,.9

      Asp 1+Ecor 1——1.6,.4

      Ecor 1….2

      I tried to solve this..I need to make a linear map…..

      The Asp1 alone digest looks to be impossible to me. You should see only two bands. They most likely won’t be the same as the EcoRI + AspI double-digest as the band lengths will be determined by how far the AspI site is from the nearest vector-derived AspI site(s). The only bands you should see are the AspI-AspI fragments that carry either the 0.4 or 1.6 kb portion of the EcoRI band. You can’t see four bands unless this is a partial digest; you should see two bands, and you may only see 1 band if the AspI gods are against you.
