The PFGRC Announces an Expanded Gateway® Entry Clone Set for Streptococcus pneumoniae TIGR4
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) sponsored Pathogen Functional Genomics Resource Center (PFGRC) at the JCVI is pleased to announce the addition of 56% more Gateway® entry clones to the Streptococcus pneumoniae TIGR4 Invitrogen Gateway® Entry Clone Set. The existing clone set, consisting of 1291 clones, was originally prepared and announced in 2004. The PFGRC has recently added 733 new clones, bringing the clone total to 2024 representing 91.6% of the ORFeome. The validated ORFs were constructed in the pDONR221 Invitrogen Gateway® Entry Clone Vector. Each ORF has a native start codon and no stop codon. The PFGRC is making this resource available to the research community free of charge as a complete clone set or individual entry clones. Please follow the link to the PFGRC Invitrogen Gateway® Entry Clone Resource for detailed ordering instructions for the complete clone set or individual clones.
