Depositor Comments

C321.∆A.opt is a variant of C321.∆A (Addgene Item #48998) engineered to have a faster growth rate, as reported in Kuznetsov, Gleb, et al. "Optimizing complex phenotypes through model-guided multiplex genome engineering." bioRxiv (2016): 086595.

This strain has a heat-inducible lambda prophage (42 C) and should be grown at or below 34 C to avoid induction.

The original strain C321.∆A (Addgene Item #48998) was reported in Lajoie, Marc J., et al. "Genomically recoded organisms expand biological functions." Science 342.6156 (2013): 357-360.
