Does anyone know from which strain is BL21 derived from? I'm asking this
because the Health & Safety people here thinks BL21 is unsafe because it
is not a K12 or B strain derivative and do not have sufficient evidence
of its disablement (don't know what that means or refer to - probably
refer to the transmissibility of the plasmids). We may not therefore use
it in the future. I've always thought that BL21 is a B strain derivative
but it seems I'm wrong, so, what is it derived from?
p.s does anyone knows of other good expression strains?
