imaGenes Joins ORFeome Collaboration

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Berlin, Germany-based imaGenes has joined the international ORFeome Collaboration, an effort spearheaded by the NIH’s National Human Genome Research Institute.
The goal of the ORFeome collaboration is to provide the research community with an unrestricted source of fully validated human and mouse cDNA clones covering the entire protein-coding sequence of the respective genes. The clones allow for the production of native or modified human proteins for functional analyses or for therapeutic applications.
imaGenes said that it will contribute proprietary clones and will provide high-quality sequencing of 2,000 single clones out of poorly characterized clone pools.
