pWE15 (ATCC 37503) and pWE16 (ATCC 37524) differ only in the markers selectable in vertebrate cells.
IMPORTANT: To prevent amplification of a rearranged and/or deleted cosmid, we recommend streaking on LB + amp plates at 30C and picking small colonies for liquid culture.
Useful for constructing genomic libraries and chromosome walking and for gene transfer using dihydrofolate reductase as a selectable marker.
