GACT: Resources


A number of resources are available from the lab, built up over the years. Many of the strains are available at the NCYC culture collection which is the preferred route for requesting large numbers and collections of strains. We are happy to send strains but request patience if you ask for large numbers. We would also hope that you could be a local source for large numbers of strains if requests from the same vicinity come to us at a later date. You can find more details here.

Yeast telomeres

In addition to strains we have descriptions and sequence files of the telomere regions in yeast.

Telomere Cloning by TAR

We have also developed a procedure for cloning telomere regions from most organisms using TAR (Transformation Associated Recombination).
