You switched the core and linker histones.

This is a great question, and Larian LeQuella answered pretty thoroughly to it. I just wanted to add that it is exciting time to be a synthetic biologist. Scientists have now the tools to build anything they have ever dreamed about.

@GWW I guess that writing a small script can get rid of the redundancy.

@Lisa: In the BBC article they discuss the Överkalix study.

comment What determines a successful protein expression in E. coli?
Thanks for your answer. I like the idea of adding additional T7 promoter, although having repetitive sequences might lead to other future problems (I don't want to go into details). But I work with genes which are 3 times larger in size and one promoter for the 2 subunits works well. Perhaps it is very sequence specific.
