The soil amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum is a practical genetic system in which targeted gene disruption by homologous recombination allows the study of specific gene functions (1–3). The efficiency of homologous recombination, however, can be less than 1%, and the identification of the desired clones requires the analysis of the genotype of many individual clones. However, the standard protocols to prepare genomic DNA for genotyping require a large number of cells (>107) and also necessitate… CONTINUE READING
