One-step gene disruption in yeast

Methods Enzymol. 1983;101:202-11. doi: 10.1016/0076-6879(83)01015-0.


The one-step gene disruption techniques described here are versatile in that a disruption can be made simply by the appropriate cloning experiment. The resultant chromosomal insertion is nonreverting and contains a genetically linked marker. Detailed knowledge of the restriction map of a fragment is not necessary. It is even possible to "probe" a fragment that is unmapped for genetic functions by constructing a series of insertions and testing each one for its phenotype.
