Department Research Core Services

The research cores in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics complement the Baylor College of Medicine Advanced Technology Cores by providing services not available via the ATC. They currently include the Baylor Genetics Research Core and the Kenneth Scott cDNA Clone Collection.

The Kenneth Scott cDNA Clone Collection

Originally curated at Baylor College of Medicine by our late colleague Dr. Ken Scott, the cDNA collection contains over 32,000 clones. These fully sequenced clones are sourced from the Thermo-Scientific Ultimate™ ORF collection (IOH clones) and from the hORFeome V8.1 libraries (Broad clones). Each clone contains an open reading frame (ORF) sub-cloned into Gateway™ recombinational entry vector for ease of cloning into a Gateway™ destination vector that suits your experimental purposes. For information regarding the details of the contents of the collection and to obtain these clones, please email Hema Bhavana and Hillary Graves. If you have concerns or questions, please contact Dr. Hugo Bellen.
