Mouse genes off the shelf

Geneservice and RZPD to distribute DNABookTM

28-Sep-2005

Geneservice Ltd and RZPD German Resource Center for Genome Research announce jointly with Kabushiki Kaisha Dnaform an agreement for the distribution of the Riken Mouse Genome Encyclopaedia DNABookTM for Dnaform. The book comprises the largest collection to date of complete mouse genes called FANTOM, created by the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN), with 60,770 full-length mouse cDNA clones spotted onto paper and bound in a B5 size book.

The actual genetic material making up a mouse (the "genome") is physically embedded into the pages of the DNABook, allowing easy storage, distribution and instant access to the genetic material. The book is also supported on-line by comprehensive databases for searching and retrieving essential information for each gene, accelerating functional genomic studies in the Mouse.
