It appears to me that the rol-6 (prf4) is the most used coninjected
marker when making transgenic worms.
However on the bus today i thought maybe if one injected GFP containing
plasmid it might be easier to find transgenic worms, which ,ight be
usefull especially when injecting in some tricky backgrounds
which dont move a lot (like unc's for example).
Im sure someone out there had a similar idea and might have
in any case what do you think?
