Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This unit provides a set of protocols for introducing large insert DNA into cultured mammalian cells and embryos. Two different methods, spheroplast fusion and lipofection, are described for effecting transfer of YACs or gel-purified YAC DNA into cells. Additional protocols discuss preparing and transferring BACs into cells by lipofection and into embryos by microinjection.
