Library Preparation Details

Description:This sequence corresponds to an RT-PCR fragment generated within the Transcript Finishing Initiative (TFI), which is devoted to the characterization of new human transcripts. Using the genomic sequence as a scaffold for EST mapping and clustering we have performed RT-PCR to bridge gaps between EST clusters that are likely to be derived from the same genes. Each pair of EST clusters selected for experimental validation was designated a single Transcript Finishing Unit (TFU). In this way we are able to confirm the membership of ESTs from different clusters to a common transcript and to provide intervening sequence information.
