Clean Genome® E. coli MDS™ Competent Cells
Product News Nov 20, 2008
Using synthetic biology methods, Scarab Genomics has made a series of planned deletions to the E. coli K-12 genome, reducing the genome by about 15%.
The multiple-deletion series (MDS™) strains eliminate non-essential genes, cryptic virulence genes, and sequences for recombinogenic and mobile insertion sequence DNA, while preserving growth in rich and minimal media.
Clean Genome E. coli MDS™ strains can offer reduced background to improve many molecular biology applications. Clean Genome E. coli MDS™ Competent Cell efficiency: Electrocompetent Cells >1010 cfu/µg pUC 19; Chemically Competent Cells =108 cfu/µg pUC 19.
