Dear Researchers,

I hope that this is not too stupid a question, I am new at this.

I would like to induce the expression of a short peptide (8 amino
acids) in E. coli. I intended to use pUC18. How can I avoid making a
fusion protein where my peptide is proceeded by Thr Met Ile Thr Asn
Ser (which are encoded by the base pairs preceding the polylinker)?

Is there a simple approach?  For example, can I modify my
oligonucleotide by giving it its own promoter?
