Other Species Collections
Where To Buy
MGC clones are available without restriction to the
scientific community through the IMAGE
consortium distribution network. When ordering, please
have the IMAGE ID and the GenBank accession number available.
Change in Distribution of Human and Mouse MGC Clones
Due to the high levels of redundancy in the human and mouse MGC collections,
clones from those species arrayed for 5' sequencing since
October 2002 (production plates LLAM, LLCM, and LLKM) will no
longer be routinely available from the
IMAGE Consortium Distributors.
Please note the following changes, in place since October 2002:
- All human and mouse MGC clones have an 8-digit IMAGE identifier
to distinguish them from clones made prior to this date,
which have 5, 6, or 7 digit identifiers.
- Only human and mouse clones sent out for full-length sequencing
are available from all IMAGE distributors on a routine basis (as before).
- Human and mouse MGC clones not sent out for full-length sequencing
can still be ordered directly from the
IMAGE Consortium Distributors but require additional processing time.
The distributor may suggest an alternative clone from the same UniGene cluster,
if one is available, but the requester can always obtain the original clone.
A limited number of MGC libraries prepared by Clontech and
Invitrogen, Inc. can be purchased directly from these vendors..
