Does anyone know anything about the origin of the filamentous helper 
phage VCSM13?  It is derived from M13KO7 and is sold by Stratagene.  My 
curiosity was piqued because their Technical Service department did not 
know what differences there were from M13KO7 nor were they willing to 
tell me who the original researcher was.  Thanks for any insights!
