Derivatives of filamentous phage, f1, fd, and M 13, useful as cloning vectors are listed, and procedures for their use are reviewed. Methods for growing phage, preparing single- and double-stranded DNA, and cloning are given in the "cook-book" form. These procedures minimize the practical problem often associated with filamentous-phage cloning, i.e., deletion of inserts.
