Haloferax volcanii insertion mutant library

Transposons are powerful tools for the generation of insertion mutant libraries in various organisms, in which each gene is tagged by an insertion. Our Haloferax insertion library contains Haloferax volcanii H295 tagged with a TrpA-cat-Mu transposon in a random position and with a full-genome coverage (1). The transposon contains selectable marker genes TrpA for Hfx. volcanii and cat for E. coli.
