X-ray integration

Dear all,

does anybody have a protocol for X-ray or UV-ray integration for extrachromosomal arrays? Is there somebody in Germany who does this regularly?

Thanks a lot!

There is a section in Wormbook on this. The protocol given in that section is somewhat similar to the highly popular Hobert protocol, which seems like it might involve somewhat less work.
Another, older protocol was written up by Michael Koelle; it’s significantly more labor-intensive than the Hobert protocol, and I think it’s used less often these days.
To select the best available mutagen, a collection of advice posted by Morris Maduro looks like it might be very helpful.
