Vibrio natriegens as a fast-growing host for molecular biology.

Authors: Weinstock, Matthew T and Hesek, Eric D and Wilson, Christopher M and Gibson, Daniel G

A rapidly growing bacterial host would be desirable for a range of routine applications in molecular biology and biotechnology. The bacterium Vibrio natriegens has the fastest growth rate of any known organism, with a reported doubling time of <10 min. We report the development of genetic tools and methods to engineer V. natriegens and demonstrate the advantages of using these engineered strains in common biotech processes.
