I'm beginning to work with halophilic archaea and I'm trying to figure out a good way to select for cells that have taken up a plasmid. Obviously, one can't use antibiotic resistance since they are not bacteria.

Is there anything equivalent I could use for + selection in cloning experiment for halophilic archaea? Usually I would use NeoR and Neo plates but that won't work...
