The genome of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides GC1176-2 was cleaved into six large fragments by the endonuclease KpnI which also cleaved the transposon Tn916 once. This has allowed genomic mapping of insertion sites for 50 transformants of GC1176-2 containing Tn916. Almost all of the mapped sites were clearly separate. The transformants provide a bank of… CONTINUE READING
