Hello netters: I am a plant biologist and teach a molecular biology course
to undergrads. I would like to try a project for the molecular lab patterned
after the EST projects where each student has their own random clone(s) to map
and try to identify from one sequencing run. Given that most of our
students are more interested in humans than plants, can anyone provide or
suggest a source for a human or mouse cDNA library to use for this purpose?
Ideally I would like to do as little work as possible to prep the clones prior
to the class so a mixture of E.coli containing plasmids, or just plasmids would
be best. We will not be using any of the clones for research. Any comments
from others who have tried this approach would be great to see. I do not
subscribe to this group so please respond directly. Thanks very much.
