Honeybee cDNA Collection (Riken)

The RIKEN Omics Center has generated one of the largest cDNA collections from honeybee that is now available for the research community. All clones were isolated from full-length cDNA libraries, and are end-sequenced from their 3' and 5' ends.

Please note that these clones may not contain a full gene coding sequence.


Over 87,000 clones.

Protocols / Clone Handling

 All RIKEN Honeybee cDNA clones can be maintained on LB plates containing Ampicillin.
