C57BL/6N (B6N) mouse BAC clone


General Information

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.

Distribution information

  • 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.
