Gene Expression (cDNAs and ORFs)

cDNAs and ORFs can be used to overexpress particular genes of interest. Choose from individual clones, lentiviral ORFs, and genome-scale libraries.

Derived from mRNA and including 5’ and 3’ UTRs, our cDNA collections are ideal for overexpressing a gene in the context of native regulation.
