Site directed mutagenesis

Hi Matt, 

no real need for a kit, they are just expensive and possibly a waste of money. Get your mutagenesis primers (at least one) and some DpnI. It might be wise to use a not proofreading enzyme, sequence some of your possible hits and if necessary, subclone a convenient stretch of your target gene. 

You might want to search the archive of this NG for Qui(c)kChange etc, this question comes up every now and then.  

If your sequence is not too long you might want to check if gene synthesis might be an alternative.

HTH & have fun with your mutants!
