GNF Buys a Human cDNA Collection from OriGene

NEW YORK, March 9 (GenomeWeb News) - The Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation has purchased a human cDNA clone collection from OriGene Technologies, OriGene said today.

 

The library contains over 20,000 non-redundant full-length human cDNA clones, covering 65 to 80 percent of all predicted human cDNAs, according to the Rockville, Md.-based company.

 

GNF will use the collection for in-house high-throughput research.
