Source BioScience granted exclusive worldwide licence by the Max Planck Institute to commercialise the C. elegans TransgeneOme collection.

The TransgenOme collection, developed by Dr Mihail Sarov at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, offers a novel opportunity for the exploration of protein function in Caenorhabditis elegans.

The collection enhances the Source BioScience portfolio of genome-wide clone resources for use in this important model organism. In addition, the library offers unique applications to complement a wide scope of research. These include:

C. elegans TransgeneOme collection applications exclusively from Source BioScience:

  • GFP-tag allows visualisation of protein localisation and expression levels in vivo in many cell types and of all life stages using live fluorescence microscopy or other methods for high-resolution in vivo imaging
  • Affinity tags can be used for established methods of protein purification coupled with mass spectrometry for protein-protein interaction analysis
  • Approach to map protein binding sites on DNA by tag-based chromatin immunoprecipitation, coupled with NGS (ChIP-Seq) - without the need to develop highly-specific antibodies

These resources are available on GenomeCUBE®, the interactive proprietary database, search engine and e-commerce tool and can be located by entering GenePair IDs, FlyBase IDs or gene symbols.
