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
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.
