My Favorite Protein: YJR097W
Purpose: To design a primer to amplify a TAP TRP1 fusion gene. After PCR, the fusion gene will have additional elements, i.e. homologous regions of the S. cerivisiae gene YGR097W flanking the TAP TRP1 gene, to enable C-terminus modification of YGR097W via homologous recombination.
