‘Magic Pools’ Approach Accelerates Study of Novel Bacteria

To characterize the functions of genes in newly discovered bacteria, scientists introduce mutations using mobile DNA snippets, called transposons, delivered via a vector. But finding an effective transposon mutagenesis system for a novel microorganism through trial and error can be time consuming and expensive. Researchers have now streamlined the process. More>
