  • Naturally resistant to ampicillin and chloramphenicol. Use spectinomycin, kanamycin, or tetracycline for selections.


(derived from Metzgar et al. paper)

  • Streak out cells on LB plate, grow overnight at 37°C
  • Innoculate colonies into 2 mL LB and grow for 12-16 hours at 30°C with shaking
  • Take a 20 μL aliquot and add to 280 μL fresh LB
  • Add DNA
  • Shake at 30°C for 2 hours
  • Plate on appropriate media with antibiotic and let grow at 30°C
