Source BioScience LifeSciences will end sequence your clones before they are sent to you - you only pay for the clones that BLAST match with the I.M.A.G.E. id you requested. This risk free option saves you time when you get your clone and removes the chance of receiving one of the wrong clones that are inherent in all copies of the I.M.A.G.E library.
The I.M.A.G.E. consortium make high quality, arrayed cDNA libraries available to the community. Each clone has been given a unique I.M.A.G.E. ID to facilitate reference. The sequence, mapping and expression data has been placed in the public domain. These clones are available free of any royalties and are available to anyone agreeing with their guidelines.

The Mammalian gene collection (MGC) is an NIH initiative to generate full-length cDNA resources. Source BioScience LifeSciences is now able to supply these full-length cDNA clones. Click here for more information.
