Depositor Comments

Mariner himar1C9 transposase driven by an arabinose promoter on an R6K gamma suicide plasmid. The transposon allows identification of fitness factors by Illumina sequencing. This transposon will randomly insert a kanamycin resistance cassette into genomic TA sites. Ampicillin resistance is contained on the plasmid backbone.
