vector for constructing cDNA libraries
IMPORTANT: To prevent amplification of a rearranged and/or deleted cosmid, we recommend streaking on LB + amp plates at 30C and picking small colonies for liquid culture.
General purpose cosmid vector derived from pBR322.
pBR322 was partially digested with Sau3A and ligated with an 0.65 BglII lambda fragment, generating a BglII site (pBR322 positions 1459-1666 deleted). A 1.65 kb BglII fragment from Charon 4A was ligated into the BglII site.
Media ATCC® Medium 1227: LB Medium (ATCC medium 1065) with 50 mcg/ml ampicillin
Growth Conditions
Temperature: 30.0°C
