1. A method of growing bacterial host cells in a gas-permeable bag comprising the steps of:
providing a starter culture of bacterial host cells, wherein the starter culture comprises at least one colony of the host cells transformed with plasmids comprising an antibiotic resistance gene;
providing the gas-permeable bag;
adding media, an antibiotic, and the starter culture host cells to the gas-permeable bag to form a main culture, wherein the antibiotic is selected such that starter culture host cells expressing the antibiotic resistance gene are viable in the presence of the antibiotic; and
incubating the gas-permeable bag containing the main culture such that host cells grow to a desired concentration.
