EST cDNA Clones

Expressed-sequence tags (ESTs) are partially-sequenced cDNA clones that have been identified as containing all or part of a specific gene.
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

    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.

  • Human Cystic Fibrosis EST cDNA

    EST cDNA libraries from human lung tissue, cystic fibrosis (CF), and non-CF epithelia.

  • Human Eye EST cDNA Collection

    The Human Eye EST cDNA Collection contains a large number of expressed sequence tag (EST) cDNA clones derived from human eye tissue.

  • Mouse BMAP EST cDNA
