Generating Isogenic Deletions (Knockouts) in Francisella tularensis, a Highly-infectious and Fastidious Gram-negative Bacterium
Authors:  Xiaojun Wu, Guoping Ren and Jason F. Huntley, date: 06/20/2015, view: 3041, Q&A: 0
Generating bacterial gene deletion mutants, also known as knockouts (KOs), is a powerful tool to investigate individual gene functions. However, fastidious bacteria such as Francisella tularensis (F. tularensis) often are difficult ...
