Dear fellow yeasters:
I have a strain with a genomic disruption of a gene using a URA3 marker, and
would like to directly transplace the disrupted gene with an intact copy of the
gene. I was thinking about directly selecting the transformants on FOA
medium, and was wondering if anyone out there has ever tried this. I don't
have a selectable marker for the gene I would like to introduce, but I can
select real transformants as opposed to URA3 revertants, by phenotype.
Does this approach seem reasonable, and can anyone give me any possible tricks
or hints about this strategy? Please e-mail me directly with any advice. Thank
you very much.
