Dear Colleagues,
I am pleased to announce that our Arabidopsis BAC-library (IGF-BAC library)
has now been integrated fully into The Reference Library Database (RLDB)
und Das Ressourcenzentrum / Primaerdatenbank (RZPD) des Deutschen
Humangenom Forschungskonzeptes associated with the department of Prof. Hans
Lehrach at the Max-Planck-Institut fuer molekulare Genetik, Berlin. This
will allow you to order filters and individual clones under the regulations
of the RLDB (for further information please check the www page,
http://rldb.rz-berlin.mpg.de). This basically will require to submit to
RLDB information about the probe used for the identification of the clone
requested, which will be integrated in our ongoing BAC-mapping project.
Upon request individual information will be kept confidential for up to one
>In this way, 9216 clones of the IGF-BAC library are available from now on. =
>set of 9216 clones is spotted in duplicate in 3 x 3 arrays on one filter. T=
>clones of our library that has been prepared from partially EcoRI digested
>Col-0 DNA have average insert sizes of 100 kb (=84 80 % of the clones carry
>inserts fo 80 to 120 kb). To our experience from over 100 individual
>hybridizations, this set of 9216 clones represents 6 to 7 Arabidopsis genom=
>equivalents and up to now all probes used identified positive clones.

As the preparation of the filters causes costs for labour and material, you
will be charged a fee according to the following list upon ordering

List of the prices incurred for BAC library filters:

Clones identified by hybridisations are free but after the first request
mailing and administrative costs are charged per posting.
