We have used Genome Systems extensively (at least 7 seperate screens)
and are very happy with both the actual results and the attitude of
the people there we have dealt with.  Each pair of primers sent resulted
in an average of more than 2 P1s returned.  They have always been from
the correct locus and, except in one case, all were greater than 65-70 kb.
The one that wasn't turned out to be very unstable in YACs also.  I can't
say that we've tried any other company though (...if it ain't broke...).


Positional cloning...it's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase.
