cDNA Libraries & cDNA Library Construction

Make your own cDNA libraries using our Invitrogen cDNA library construction kits, or amplify mRNA ends with one of our RACE kits. We've also made available BAC/PAC genomic libraries from CalTech and RPCI.

cDNA Library Construction Kits

Construct high quality full length Invitrogen cDNA libraries using SuperScript reverse transcriptase combined with Gateway cloning for uncut libraries (no use of restriction digestion). Or use our innovative CloneMiner II kits.

RACE kits

Kits for Rapid Amplification of cDNA Ends (RACE) to amplify unknown nucleic acid sequences at the 3′ or the 5′ end of mRNA.
