GREAT AT SMALL THINGS

GeneCorner distributes the smallest high-copy cloning vector ever described.

pICOz, derived from pUC18, is a 1185-bp fully functional high-copy cloning plasmid with an extended multiple cloning site.

The engineering of this minimal vector and the potential use-cases for this tiny plasmid backbone are described in Staal et al., BioTechniques 66 (2019).

pICOz as well as its parental clones are publicly accessible via BCCM/GeneCorner.
