>I have a rather simple question regarding the description of a plasmid as
presented in a paper. The plasmid contains multiple genes that have been
spliced together and this is described in the paper as "CAB::LUC::E9". I
know the CAB, LUC, and E9. Is there any significance to the "::"? Does
it have a specific meaning ? Excuse the ignorance if this is common.
"::" ----- I normally read this convention as an insert interrupting some
gene, in this case it seems to be a luc insert in cab, while the luc itself
contains the e9, is that right?
