From Rachel Dent, Niyogi lab, University of California-Berkeley, 2011

The CAL collection of mutants affected in photosynthesis and/or photoprotection was generated in the Niyogi laboratory at UC-Berkeley by Rachel Dent et al. (Dent et al., 2005; Dent et al., 2015). This mutant was generated by insertional mutagenesis of the wild-type strain 4A+ (mt+, 137c background; CC-4051) using glass bead transformation with KpnI-linearized pMS188 plasmid (Schroda et al., 2002) conferring zeocin resistance. Flanking sequence adjacent to the resistance gene was isolated by a PCR-based approach.
