Strains contributed by this laboratory

Strain Genotype Species Description
iOP50 OP50 E. coli, rnc14::(delta)Tn10, lacz(gamma)A::T7pol camFRT E. coli RNAi-capable OP50 strain. Tetracycline & Chloramphenicol resistant. Uracil auxotroph. E. coli B. Biosafety Level: BSL-1. Standard OP50 (CGC) was rendered RNAi competent through two modifications by phage transduction. The OP50 RNase III (rnc) allele was replaced with the deletion allele (rnc14::ΔTn10) found in HT115(DE3), and a genomically encoded IPTG-inducible T7 RNA polymerase (laczγA::T7pol camFRT) was introduced.

This laboratory hasn't submitted any alleles to the CGC.
