E. coli strain for plasmid prep AND expression

Postby vernet » Wed Dec 08, 2004 4:46 pm

I am looking for an E. coli strain for efficient transformation (recA) AND good expression of gene under lac promotor that can also deliver good quality plasmids. Any hints?

Usually, you can kill off all bacteria that are NOT part of your experiment. You might have one or two left, but let them divide a few times, and you can quickly come up with a good culture.
