10,000 Sequenced Mouse Genomic Clones Derived From a CpG Library
Inventors: Peggy Farnham
The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is seeking commercial partners interested in mouse genomic clones derived from a library containing mouse CpG islands.
CpG islands are areas of DNA containing a high CpG content, which often correspond to promoter regions.
A UW-Madison researcher has developed a set of almost 10,000 sequenced mouse genomic clones derived from a library containing mouse CpG islands. Sequence analysis showed that each clone is present only one time in the set. These clones can be used in microarrays.
- Genome-wide studies
- Clones may be arrayed onto microscopic slides for use in ChIP-chip assays.
- Clones are unique.
- Clones do not correspond to ribosomal DNA.
