# genetics (again)

i asked this question...when subcloning a gene and inserting it into a vector you normally would use x-gal to locate transformants if x-gal is not available what are the alternatives...and thankyou for the alternatives but i was wondering if there was any other process that could be used instead of plating...would complementation work?
