Depositor Comments

Note from depositor regarding growing this plasmid: W used DH10B, plated on LB/carb, and grew the plasmid up in TB medium plus 2% glycerol and 100 ug/mL carbenicillin. It's key to not grow the cells up too long, either on the plate or in the liquid medium, and probably best to harvest the cells in early stationary phase.
