Project

Plasmid replicons from Lactococcus lactis

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Lactococcus lactis is commonly used in food fermentations. Important traits of industrially important L. lactis strains are located on plasmids. Plasmids seems to be important for the evolution and adaption of L. lactis to the dairy environment. Plasmids are generally very important for evolution of procariots.
In this project the genome sequences of isolates of L. lactis should be analyzed for the presence of replication proteins and plasmid replication origins.  Replicons will be isolated by PCR and furnished with a selectable marker by Gibson assembley to create selectable plasmids. Compatibility and copy number of the constructed plasmids will be characterized.
