The Gene Engineering Division has constructed a BAC library of the B6N substrain and the RIKEN BioResource Research Center (BRC) accomplished BAC end sequencing of B6N and register the sequence data with DDBJ in a collaboration with the National Institute of Genetics under the Genome Information Upgrading Program of MEXT NBRP. The B6N Mouse BAC library consisted of 128,000 clones representing 90.2% of actual coverage of haploid genome.
The germ cell competent C57BL/6N ES cell lines are available from the Cell Engineering Division of BRC.
Individual clone ID can be get on the Mouse BAC browser.
Instruction: Searching BAC clone by the BAC browser
- Specify ID of clone(s) ex. B6Ng01-122P06 in the Name of clone column.
Leave Catalog no. column empty.

Please visit further information of distribution and fees.
|Distribution fee per clone (as of April 1st, 2023):
JPY 9,460 (For use in research for not-for-profit academic purpose).
JPY 18,920 (For use in research for-profit-research purpose).
- B6N mouse BAC clone(s) is shipped as stab agar culture with 12.5 ug/mL chloramphenicol in an individual tube.
- When you receive the plastic vial of stab culture, please streak the bacteria on an LB agar plate containing 12.5 ug/mL chloramphenicol. We hope you can find colonies.
- When you streak bacteria, please take bacteria from the middle part of stab agar medium but not those from the surface of the stab which are not really healthy.
- The vial should be placed in a refrigerator (4 C degree) but not in a freezer. Stab culture is not meant to be for frozen storage of bacteria.
- Please refer BAC Related Information for further information.
