[Developing a physical map of human chromosome 22 using Pace electrophoresis and large fragment cloning]. Annual report, October 1, 1989--September 30, 1990
Description: In the past year the authors have made significant progress in the development of a bacterial based cloning system for large fragments of mammalian DNA. They have completed construction of several recombination deficient bacterial host strains designed to minimize homologous recombination arising with repeats within cloned DNA. Despite the multiple mutations, these strains are viable and grow readily on standard media (LB). One of the chief attractions of a bacterial system is the promise of high transformation efficiencies. The author have pursued two separate strategies with the vector. The first makes use of the cos sites in the vector to package cloned DNA as phage particles for infection. By maintaining the vector as a single copy in the recombination minus host, they believe that the recombination that affects conventional cosmid libraries will be eliminated. They encountered no difficulties in preparing such a ``Fosmid`` (F factor based cosmid) library of human DNA.
