Human Full-Length cDNA Clone

The RIKEN BioResource Center is distributing copies of full-length human cDNA clones, produced and organized through the MEXT Genome Network Project to academia under its distribution policy.
There are two types of cDNA clone collections.
1) Human Full-Length cDNA clones
Approximately 30,000 clones corresponding to 60% of all human genes (14,000 genes) produced and organized by Dr. Sumio Sugano of the University of Tokyo and Dr. Yoshihide Hayashizaki of RIKEN OSC.
2) Human Gateway® Entry clones
Approximately 50,000 clones corresponding to 6,300 genes produced by cloning PCR-amplified open reading frame (ORF) fragments from full-length human cDNA clones and studied through the government-supported MEXT Genome Network Project. DNA fragments cloned into Gateway® entry clones can be transferred into one or more destination vectors simultaneously using Gateway® technology. The Gateway® Entry clones include clones made from cDNA created by the Research Association for Biotechnology (RAB) under the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) Full-length Human cDNA Sequencing Project.


Results of the project attained using the Genome Network Project cDNA clones have appeared in journals including Nature Genetics. Detailed information on these clones is available via the Genome Network Platform (http://genomenetwork.nig.ac.jp/).
