Genomic P1 Library Screening Service

I thought I'd pass along this information 
to the Arabidopsis Bulletin Board.......

Gold BioTechnology, Inc. has constructed a series of phage-P1 vector
libraries for mouse, Drosophila, and human genomes.  They routinely
retrieve clones from these libraries utilizing PCR-based matrice
screenings.  Each clone retrieved contains approximately 100 kbp of DNA
from the genomic region of interest.  As a service, Gold BioTechnology
will take the PCR primers provided to them, will amplify up the target
DNA, identify the positive clones for the screen, and will forward the
phage-P1 vector clones to you in a few days (each containing approximately 
100 kbp of DNA insert).  I'm not sure what the cost is at this time.  If 
there is enough interest in such a service, they are contemplating the 
construction of similar libraries for plant researchers.  At the moment they 
are considering the construction of libraries for Arabidopsis, cotton, maize, 
soybean, etc.....  At his stage, they are trying to get a feel for the
demand from the plant research community for such a service.  If you are 
somewhat interested, you may want to contact Gold BioTechnology expressing 
your interest in such a service.  If interested, please contact:

organization.  I am just passing along this information for those which
may be interested in the services that Gold BioTechnology has to offer.

P.S.	I just saw an ad for this company (GS/GBT) in the recent BioTechniques 
	Vol.13, No.3, September 1992.  If you're interested in more 
	information you should circle Reader Service No. 230 in that issue.
