Bacterial artificial chromosome. A large-insert cloning system that utilizes a small cloning vector based on the Escherichia coli F factor. It incorporates an antibiotic-resistance marker, cloning sites and rare-cutter restriction sites for mapping.
Bacterial artificial chromosome. A vector capable of replication in bacteria that is used to clone 100 to 300 kb DNA fragments into E. coli cells.
An acronym for Bacterial Artifical Chromosome. Low copy number plasmid vectors that allow stable cloning very large DNA fragments (often 100 Kb or more).
Stands for Bacterial Artificial Chromosome, a cloning and sequencing vector derived form a bacterial chromosome into which a 100,000 bp fragment or more can be inserted.
A vector used to clone DNA fragments (100-kb to 300-kb insert size; average, 150-kb) in E. Coli cells. Based on naturally occurring F-factor plasmid found in the bacterium E. coli.

Bacterial artificial chromosome. Cloning vector that can incorporate large fragments of DNA. (see YACS)
(bacterial artificial chromosome) A cloning vector constructed from bacterial fertility (F) factors; like YAC vectors, they accept large inserts of size 200 to 500 kb. See cloning vector; YAC.
(Bacterial Artificial Chromosome) Clone used to generate genome library -supports 100-400 kb insert
Bacterial Artificial Chromosome. a vehicle based on the bacteria E. coli that is used to copy, or clone, fragments of DNA that are 150,000 to 180,000 base pairs (bp) long. These DNA fragments are used as starting material for DNA sequencing.
Bacterial Artificial Chromosome. A chromosome-like structure constructed using recombinant-DNA technology. It is used to clone large DNA inserts (100 to 300 kb) into E. coli cells.
a vector used to clone DNA fragments. Different BACs work in different organisms.
Bacterial artificial chromosome; an F plasmid engineered to act as a cloning vector that can carry large inserts.
Bacterial artificial chromosome. A long sequencing vector which is created from a bacterial chromosome by splicing a DNA fragment of 100kb (or more) from another species. Once the foreign DNA has been cloned into the host bacteria, many copies of the new chromosome can be made.
Bacterial artificial chromosome. An artificial chromosome created from modification of the fertility factor of plasmids which allows incorporation of up to 330 kb of foreign DNA.
