The I.M.A.G.E. (The Integrated Molecular Analysis of Genomes and their Expression) Consortium was initiated to create and share libraries of complementary (cDNA) clones.


  • Extensive source for cDNA and EST clones
  • cDNAs derived from human, mouse, rat, and bovine tissue
  • Potential applications include genome-mapping, novel gene identification, and sources of novel cDNAs

Why full-insert sequencing is important

  1. EST (expressed sequence tag) clones are not all fully sequenced, only a portion of the cDNA has been sequenced.
  2. Without full-insert sequencing, it is impossible to know whether a clone contains SNPs, alternative splice variants, insertions, or deletions.
  3. Because these EST clones are not fully sequenced, we cannot guarantee clone content.

Dharmacon is a distributor of multiple gene expression clone collections (cDNAs and ORFs). These clone collections were generated by groups outside of Dharmacon and thus the quality of the collections is largely dependent upon what Dharmacon received from these groups. Specific clone information and plate coordinates were provided to Dharmacon by the suppliers of these clone collections. Dharmacon has not sequence verified each individual clone from these collections. These collections and individual clones are distributed "as is" with no additional product validation or guarantees. Dharmacon has established quality procedures to ensure that individual clones are picked from the identified well in a plate, grown on the correct antibiotic, and are free of phage contamination. Due to the quality of the information provided to Dharmacon, the clone you receive might not match the expected clone. If this occurs, please contact Technical Support.
