Depositor Comments

pCP5b is a high copy derivative of pCP5 for higher DNA yield from bacteria.
Plasmid used to assay TALEN function in yeast. Clone target sequences into BglII and SpeI sites as described on article.
Grow yeast transformants in SD-Ura-Trp prior to assay to prevent spontaneous recombination between the lacZ fragments
