What concentration of kanamycin is used for the section of recombinant E.
coli? I bothered high background of non-recombinant clones. My conditions
are as follows:
kanamycin: 30 ug/ml in LB plate (according to Current Protocol)
E. coli: XL2-Blue MRF, XL1-Blue, DH5a (commercial competent cell)
plasmid: pBK-CMV, pEGFP-N1

Please give me any suggestion and comments.
