P. falciparum piggyBac Insertion Mutants Now Available

From the laboratory of John Adams, we now have over 100 piggyBac insertion mutants available, complete with mapped insertion sites. The list of currently available clones is HERE. Please place your request for individual mutants by specifying the MR4 number (column 1 on the spreadsheet) and Clone ID number (column 4) to malaria@atcc.org. Clones will be listed as separate reagents by MR4 number in the MR4 and BEI Resources catalogs in the near future.
