Drosophila Gold Collection
Last updated January 31, 2012 The DGC Gold collection is comprised of clones with verified full-length ORFs, and will be useful for proteomic applications. By comparing finished DGC clones with the Release 5 annotation (FlyBase r5.32) of the genome, a subset of 11,121 clones representing 10,274 genes (74% of the predicted D. melanogaster genes) that match amino acid sequence throughout the entire open reading frame (ORF) have been selected and rearrayed to produce the DGC Gold collection. A description of the methods used for selection is described in the Genome Biology article A Drosophila full-length cDNA resource. The collection will continue to grow as sequencing of the DGC progresses.
The complete collection is available from the DGRC
