Currently tracks the following types of reagents:
- Self-propagating circular DNA that is comprised of a backbone (parent vector) and may contain an insert.
- Linear piece of DNA formed either by PCR, oligo hybridization, or restriction digestion of a parent vector. The purpose of most inserts is to be subcloned into a vector for propagation and downstream applications. The insert itself is often stored as an intermediate step in the cloning pathway. Inserts can also be siRNAs.
- Single stranded DNA usually less than 100 nucleotides that are used as PCR primers, sequencing primers, or hybridized to form an insert.
- Cell lines:
- Immortalized cells that are propagated within the laboratory. The cell lines are classified as either parent cell lines or stable cell lines, where one or more vectors have been stably expressed within the cell line.
