Genomic reconstruction by serial mitotic recombination of yeast artificial chromosomes.
DNA cloned in yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs) is a valuable resource for functional experiments in cell culture as well as whole animal systems. Where the size or chimerism of a YAC clone are limiting factors it may be desirable to generate recombinant YAC clones. One such approach is based on mitotic recombination, and we describe the development of a methodology that allows multiple recombination cycles for serial reconstruction of overlapping YACs. This approach employs retrofitting wi...Expand abstract
