We run the majority of our experiments in modified M9 medium. Here is the recipe.

We use MAGE extensively to engineer bacterial and phage genomes.  We follow these protocols:

For re-sequencing, we use Breseq.

Data from our 2012 Science paper on the evolution of lambda phage innovation are available from the Dryad Digital Repository.

Strain request
If you’d like a strain we have published about, please send an e-mail to Justin ( Warning, we will have to create a Materials Transfer Agreement according to UCSD standards, which takes time.
