Hi All, 

I am currently using pEGFP-N1 as my vector of choice. I plan to 
sticky-end ligate a 1.6kb gene into the MCS of this vector. I'm 
wanting to know whether anyone knows if this vector has some other 
selection marker besides the antibiotic resistance genes as I'm 
getting 300+ colonies and it would take me well into the next 
millenium to scrren them all for a positive one. If there is no other 
marker, what about the idea of ligating in lacZ next to my gene into 
the GFP's MCS?

Please let me know if anyone can help!
