pBC phagemids are cloning vectors designed to simplify commonly used cloning and sequencing procedures. Phagemids are plasmids with a phage origin, and pBC phagemids are derived from the pBluescript II phagemid.
Applications include constructing nested deletions for DNA sequencing, generating RNA transcripts in vitro, and site-specific mutagenesis and gene mapping. The ampicillin-resistance gene in the vectors has been replaced with the chloramphenicol resistance gene.
