Fosmid Library Construction

CUGI now offers high quality fosmid library construction. Fosmids are commonly used for preparing genomic libraries when a smaller insert size is desired. The inserts have an average size of 40 kb and are produced by random shearing, yielding a more uniform coverage of the genome than other library types. Fosmids are excellent candidates for closing gaps in a whole genome sequence and physical maps due to their uniform coverage. Additionally, they are popular for metagenomic and expression studies. The entire 40 kb insert can be shuttled into an expression vector more easily than a larger insert and the higher copy number per cell allows for easier manipulation and cheaper downstream applications.
