Screening lambdagt recombinant clones by hybridization to single plaques in situ

Science. 1977 Apr 8;196(4286):180-2. doi: 10.1126/science.322279.


A rapid, direct method for screening single plaques of Agt recombinant phage is described. The method allows at least 10(6) clones to be screened per day and simplifies physical containment of recombinants.
