Shuffling of DNA cassettes in a synthetic integron

Abstract : The complexity of even small gene networks makes them hardly amenable to rational design. Testing random combinations of genetic elements in a directed evolution procedure is thus of interest for many applications including metabolic engineering. Here we describe how the recombination machinery of class 1 integrons can be used to deliver and shuffle genetic elements at a chromosomal locus in E. coli.
