About the MGC

The goal of the Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC), a trans-NIH initiative, is to provide full-length open reading frame (FL-ORF) clones for human, mouse, and rat genes. In 2005, the project added the cow cDNAs generated by Genome Canada.
Initially, cDNA libraries provided the source of the clones. Recently, alternative methods based on gene-specific amplification have been developed to target the recovery of human and mouse genes absent from the MGC collection. (See References 1, 2, 3)

All MGC sequences are deposited in GenBank and the clones can be purchased from distributors of the IMAGE consortium. For background information about the MGC, please read the Project Summary.

Note: Please check the GenBank record of each MGC full-length clone for detailed sequence annotation. Some MGC sequences have nucleotide differences that are not supported by other experimental data.
