pWE15 (ATCC 37503) and pWE16 (ATCC 37524) differ only in the markers selectable in vertebrate cells.
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 rapid genomic walking, restriction mapping and gene transfer, with selectable markers in either Escherichia coli or mammalian cell lines. Contains promoters T3 and T7 flanking the BamHI site.
