The transposon Tn916 was evaluated as a tool for generalized mutagenesis of the genome of Haemophilus influenzae. This was achieved in silico by searching the genome sequence of H. influenzae Rd for the published Tn916 target site consensus sequence 5' TT/ATTTT(N)6AAAAAA/TA. This search identified 16 putative target sites. In subsequent experiments, integration of Tn916 did not occur at any of these sites. Using the nucleotide sequences of these observed integration sites, a new consensus seq...Expand abstract
