Application of single-stranded DNA recombineering for genome editing of species other than enterobacteria is limited by the efficiency of the recombinase and the action of endogenous mismatch repair (MMR) systems. In this work we have set up a genetic system for entering multiple changes in the chromosome of the biotechnologically relevant strain EM42 of Pseudomononas putida. To this end high-level heat-inducible co-transcription of the rec2 recombinase and P. putida's allele mutL(E36K)(PP) was designed under the control of the P-L/cl857 system. Cycles of short thermal shifts followed by transformation with a suite of mutagenic oligos delivered different types of genomic changes at frequencies up to 10% per single modification. The same approach was instrumental to super-diversify short chromosomal portions for creating libraries of functional genomic segments-e.g., ribosomal-binding sites. These results enabled multiplexing of genome engineering of P. putida, as required for metabolic reprogramming of this important synthetic biology chassis.
