We recently released ~17,000 additional mutants. Together with mutants released before, the total number of mutants available is now ~37,000, covering 73% of the Chlamydomonas genome!

A manuscript describing the pilot collection is here(link is external). Most of the mutants available (specifically, mutants labeled LMJ.RY0402.******) are from a second generation library, not described in this manuscript, but for practical purposes the manuscript should serve as a good guide.

Please beware that only ~75% of the insertions are correctly mapped, so they must be verified by PCR!!!

Please see the FAQ on the website and direct technical questions to the The Chlamy Mutant Library team (link sends email) and ordering questions to Matt Laudon

Please disseminate this information broadly to your colleagues, even those not currently using Chlamy. We hope that this resource will help advance many fields.

Best wishes,

The Chlamy Mutant Library team
