  • In contrast, PDP-FISH has been reported for three CNV loci using fosmid probes, which distinguish signal presence and absence rather than signal intensity differences pod-FISH has already been successfully used to identify the parental origin of individual derivative chromosomes, such as the characterization of chimerism and uniparental disomy 15

  • These techniques require CNV-region-specific bacterial artificial chromosomes (BAC; pod-FISH) and fosmid clones (PDP-FISH) to visualize copy number polymorphisms on homologous chromosomes. pod-FISH is available for 225 CNV, based on specific BAC clones of more than 150 kb in length and with variation frequencies in populations of over 10%.

  • Thus, by comparing the two ends of a piece of human DNA held in a fosmid, against their known positions in the human genome sequence, the scientists could quickly and easily spot differences in size.

  • Previously, we used EL350 and EPI300 sequentially to recombineer oriV-equipped fosmid genomic clones and, subsequently, to induce copy-number of the resulting recombinant clone.

  • This new strain has been used to both generate, via recombineering, a number of reporter gene fusions directly from pCC1FOS-based Caenorhabditis elegans genomic clones and to transiently induce copy-number of fosmid and BAC clones prior to DNA preparation.

    BioMed Central - Latest articles

  • BAC and fosmid clones are highly suitable for modification by recombineering but, because they are present at low (1-2) copies per cell, the DNA is difficult to isolate in high yield and purity.
