Strain Information

Name VC30222   View On Wormbase
Species C. elegans
GenotypeWhole-genome sequenced strain.
DescriptionDo not bleach! NOTE: VC30222 does not grow well on E. coli OP50, but does grow well on plates of OP50 mixed with other E. coli strains. It has been grown successfully on HB101 and X1666, and on plates containing unknown bacterial contaminants. Avoid egg-prepping onto OP50 plates. Million Mutation Project strain. This strain was isolated after ENU mutagenesis of VC2010, propagated clonally through F10 to drive mutations to homozygosity, and subjected to whole-genome sequencing. It is homozygous for a large number of mutations determined from sequence data. It may also carry large copy number variations that are not homozygous. Alleles numbered between gk100000 and gk962522 are homozygous; those numbered from gk962523 up should be assumed to be non-homozygous. A graphical representation of these large copy number differences can be seen in the Plot section for each strain on the MMP web site ( Attribution: This strain was provided by the C. elegans Reverse Genetics Core Facility at the University of British Columbia, which is part of the international C. elegans Gene Knockout Consortium, which should be acknowledged in any publications resulting from its use.
