vector for constructing genomic libraries
vector for other uses
vector permitting RNA synthesis in vitro
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): BamHI--5.6; HindIII--5.8.
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.
Cosmid vector for genomic library construction. Insert-end-specific probes may be generated from T7 and SP6 promoters.
Transcription terminators somewhat insulate the vector genes from insert transcription.
Media ATCC® Medium 1236: LB Medium (ATCC medium 1065) with 25 mcg/ml kanamycin
Growth Conditions
Temperature: 30.0°C
