Hi Netters,

I am screening a genomic library made up in lambda ZapII vector. I want to
know the growth conditions so as to get 20 000 plaques per 150mm plate.
Right now I am following Maniatis (NZY plates, plaques are grown for 12h
at 37C), but I do not get more than 2 000 plaques (almost touching each
other) per plate. The size of my plaques is almost equal to a well grown
bacterial colony.
Any suggestions in this regard will be appreciated.
