Source BioScience gene sets

Source BioScience has made sets of genes from the IMAGE and MGC collections of clones and are now distributing these sets to customers to enhance their projects in a systematic manner. Sets are available for human, mouse and rat and are great value for money.

The I.M.A.G.E. consortium compose high quality, arrayed cDNA libraries and make them 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 accepting the "good faith agreement". See Lennon et al. The Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC) is an NIH initiative to generate full-length cDNA resources. 

How the sets were made

Identification of the clones was performed using a bioinformatic procedure. Gene sets were compiled by arraying clones from MGC and IMAGE. The schematic for the procedure is the following:

  • Identify a gene name list from a text search of the gene nomenclature committee database
  • Search all available IMAGE and MGC clones for gene name list using GenomeCUBE®
  • Select using the priority: MGC, IMAGE 7 digit, IMAGE 8 digit
  • Arrayed the selected clones
  • Gene sets are sold at whole plate prices even if only a part plate is used.

Important information

  • Discovered gene names might be only associated with the search term and not necessarily functionally related (Eg a phosphatase associated gene).
  • Not all gene names in all human, mouse and rat have an MGC or IMAGE clone
  • The gene sets are not sequence verified and probably contain as many errors as are found normally in the IMAGE library.
  • There is no guarantee that the set is a complete list
