The I.M.A.G.E. consortium make high quality, arrayed cDNA libraries available to the community. Each clone has been given a unique I.M.A.G.E. ID to facilitate reference. The sequence, mapping and expression data has been placed in the public domain, the clones are available free of any royalties and are available to anyone agreeing with their guidelines.

Mammalian gene collection
The Mammalian gene collection (MGC) is an NIH initiative to generate full-length cDNA resources. Source BioScience is able to supply these full-length cDNA clones. Click here for more information.
- Fully-sequenced clones have been sequenced throughout the coding region of the gene, by the IMAGE consortium.
- Partially sequenced clones have gone through a single round of sequencing either the 3' or 5' coding region of the gene, by the IMAGE consortium.
I.M.A.G.E consortium SP clones
Due to high levels of redundancy in the IMAGE libraries, all the clones produced are no longer routinely available. Most of the clones should still be available from the current repository.
Our online ordering system will check if the clone you are interested in is part the collection we curate, and automatically assign an SP status to the ones that we do not have in our freezers. We will then order it for you for our normal price plus an Administration charge of £30 per clone. Please be aware that due to the complexity in checking and eventually getting these clones, it will take a minimum of three weeks for the order to be processed.
