Expressed-sequence tags (ESTs) are cDNA sequences that have been sequenced from either the 5’ or 3’ ends. They may contain all or part of a particular cDNA coding sequence, and are useful for identifying unknown genes, mapping their positions within a genome, and as a potential source for genetic material when a full-length cDNA is not available for a specific gene of interest.
EST cDNA collections from the I.M.A.G.E. Consortium include clones from human, mouse, rat, and bovine sources.
IMAGE Synthesized ORFs are synthesized human and mouse open reading frame (ORF) constructs created by the I.M.A.G.E. Consortium and cloned into Gateway-entry vectors.
EST cDNA libraries from human lung tissue, cystic fibrosis (CF), and non-CF epithelia.
The Human Eye EST cDNA Collection contains a large number of expressed sequence tag (EST) cDNA clones derived from human eye tissue.
BMAP EST cDNAs and libraries are intended for studying gene expression in the adult mouse nervous system. The BMAP collection represents cDNAs from 10 regions of adult mouse brain, spinal cord, and retina.
