And what about the plasmids?

these should be fine, but I don't know whether they have compatible the replication origins ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

So if I want to insert gDNA first I need to cut it and after that to insert it?And how to transform it?

I don't know how big is the genome, but probably yes, cut, ligate, and transform. I'm not sure what is the size limit for electroporation.

The size ot the lactobacteria is 2.3 Mbp.The limit is <10Kbp.

here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacterial_ ... chromosome they put the common size of insert into BAC is up to 350 kbp. Thus the number of clones you had to test would be N = [ln(1-P)]/[ln(1-[350/2300])] where P is the probability you will find your gene of interest or whethever are you looking for (99.5%) and 350/2300 is the ratio of insert and whole genome size. As I calculated it the N is ~4, what is odd, since the ration genome/insert is 6.5 :lol: :roll:

I guess best to contact someone who is experienced e.g. someone from some sequencing company/group.

What is your aim again?

To insert DNA from the bulgaricus in E.coli.

So you mean to cut the gDNA and to attach it to F-plasmids and after that to insert the plasmids into E.coli?

yes, that's how BACs work

And how to get F-plasmids?

sorry, I have really no idea. But I guess the material providers like Invitrogen or whatever should probably have system for making gDNA library.

Well I guess that is possible to insert "naked" DNA into bacteria.
