Depositor Comments

There are a few mismatches between Addgene's quality control sequence and the depositing lab's reference sequence; these changes do not interfere with the double homologous recombination or with the chloramphenicol selection. The coding sequence of the PHLS transgene is correct.

Please see the original publication where this sequence was first used:
Bentley FK, García-Cerdán JG, Chen H-C, Melis A (2013) Paradigm of monoterpene (β-phellandrene) hydrocarbons production via photosynthesis in cyanobacteria. BioEnergy Res. 6:917-929; DOI 10.1007/s12155-013-9325-4
