Full-length cDNA was collected using the Cap-trapper method and a series of full-length cDNA technologies. Sequences were determined using the high-throughput RISA sequencing pipeline. Quality checks were implemented by re-sequencing all of the clones. Derived sequence data for FANTOM2 clones are available in both DDBJ and Genbank databases.
All FANTOM2 clones are provided in the DNABook™.
This resource forms an easily transportable bank of DNA, printed on paper and bound as a book. DNA can be readily recovered from the paper using PCR and/or transformation. See Kawai J and Hayashizaki Y. (2003) "DNA Book" Genome Res. 13:1488-95.
RIKEN initiated the mouse genome encyclopaedia project in 1995, at a time when genomic science was gaining prominence in the world of research. Focusing on mouse full-length cDNA, RIKEN had two main aims:
