  • Forward genetics:

    • Start with a phenotype.

    • Find the genes responsible for a phenotype.

  • Reverse genetics:

    • Start with a/some gene(s)

    • Figure out the traits they confer

2. Ligate PCR product intoworkhorse plasmid (pRC3.1); TCCE

Amplify target genesfrom T. crunogenagDNAvia PCR

3. Subject plasmid to Tn5-mediatedmutagenesis in vitro; TCCE

7. Mate into T. crunogena

4. Screen clones for Tn5-interruptedtarget gene

5. Amplify interrupted target genes via PCR

6. Ligate interrupted genesinto mating plasmid (pLD55); TCCE

Steps for testing whether ca is helpful for co 2 vacuuming
Steps for testing whether CA is helpful for CO2 vacuuming

  • Try to grow site-directed mutants of CA genes on:

    • Hi CO2 plates (positive control)

    • Low CO2 plates (experimental)
