  • In this issue of the , Hustmyer and colleagues describe a new method for rapidly generating reporter libraries (Hustmyer citation). This RAIL technique (apid rbitrary PCR nsertion ibraries) uses arbitrary PCR and isothermal DNA assembly to insert random fragments of promoter regions into reporter plasmids, resulting in libraries that can be screened to identify regions required for gene expression. This technique will likely be useful for a number of different genetic applications.
