What the Clone Finder Can Do
The Clone Finder allows you to submit a list of UniGene cluster numbers and get back a corresponding list of IMAGE clones that correspond to each UniGene cluster.
Use the Clone Finder
- Do NOT mix Hs. and Mm. numbers in one file.
- The text file must list the UniGene numbers in a vertical column like this:
Hs.222 Hs.444 Hs.666 Hs.888 BG210741 T84477 D90040 NM_000668 63036 7051 2235 1084
Clones are selected in accordance with the following rules:
- If the cluster contains one or more MGC clones, then all MGC clones in the cluster will be returned.
- Otherwise, the longest 5'-end clone (if one exists) and the longest 3'-end clone (if one exists) will be returned.
- In addition to (2) above, if there is a clone that has not been annotated as being 5' or 3', and if this unannotated clone is longer than either the longest 5'-end clone or the longest 3'-end clone, then this unannotated clone will be returned.
- If no IMAGE clone can be identified for the cluster, the cluster number will appear on a line by itself.
Clone List Results
The list that is returned has four columns:
- Cluster number
- GenBank accession number of clone sequence
- IMAGE clone id
- Clone length
- End (5' or 3')
- "MGC" = Mammalian Gene Collection clone
- "GEN" = General (not MGC)
