Dear Cotton Researchers,
Dr. Thea WIlkins would like to release all of her genome resources through Amplicon
Express (for lists the type and cost of services, please visit
), as they maintain excellent QC and provide a range of
services. However, she needs know if there is sufficient interest by the community for
Amplicon to provide such services.
The resources are 6 BAC libraries of excellent quality with >125 kb inserts as follows
~8X MboI G. Arboreum AKA8401 library anchored by Andy Paterson
~6X BamHI G. arboreum AKA 8401 library used to generate sequence-based physical map
~6X EcoRI G. arboreum AKA 8401 library used to generate sequence-based physical map
5X Gossypiodes Kirkii BAC library generated for making
sequence-based physical map
5X G. Kirkii library generated for making a sequence-based physical map
hirsutum TM1 BAC library
Please let us know if you are interested in using these resources via services provided by
Amplicon Express within the next two weeks. If there is not enough interest, these
important resources, which are not currently available to the community, will be lost to
the community forever.
Please reply to this email with either a “yes” or “no” (please use reply and not reply
Thank you for your help.
Dr. Jing Yu
