RIKEN Buys OriGene cDNA Clone Collection for Structural Proteomics

NEW YORK, March 30 (GenomeWeb News) - The protein research group at Japan's Institute of Physical and Chemical Research, RIKEN, has purchased a cDNA clone collection from OriGene Technologies, the company said today.

 

The RIKEN researchers plan to use the collection to express proteins to investigate their three-dimensional structure.

 

OriGene's TrueClone Collection contains over 20,000 non-redundant full-length human cDNA clones suitable for transfection and in vivo or in vitro expression. OriGene is based in Rockville, Md.
