Human BAC Resource
Integration of cytogenetic landmarks into the draft sequence of the human genome
The BAC Resource consortium
Nature 409, 953-958 (2001)
This resource provides genome-wide resource of large-insert clones that will help integrate cytogenetic, radiation-hybrid, linkage, and sequence maps of the human genome.
Table 1. A cytogenetic resource of FISH-mapped, sequence-tagged clones (HBRC_1 set). Click number in the table to view list of clones
+Clones are placed on NCBI contigs. Only clones that are localiized to one or two places on the same chromosome on the genome are included in this count
This table was last updated on Mon Mar 13 16:12:26 EST 2006.
This set, HBRC_1 set, initially consisted of 8877 clones but the number has been changed as more FISH data became available. This set consists of primarily bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) clones.
- Each clone has been mapped by Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH).
- Each clone has one or more sequence tags which can be used to anchor the clone onto the human genomic sequence map. Sequence tags are in the form of either GenBank accession number from actual draft or finished sequence of clone insert DNA, GenBank accession numbers from BAC-end sequences, or STS determined by PCR and hybridization experiment.
- Each clone is available as single-colony purified bacterial stock through one of three distributors.
Clones selected on the basis of band location were used in FISH
analysis to map the breakpoint of a translocation involving chromosomes 11 and 19 in a
patient with multiple congenital malformations and mental retardation (DGAP012,
http://dgap.harvard.edu). Clone CTD-3193o13 spans the breakpoint on chromosome 19;
red signal is split between the derivative chromosome 11 and derivative 19 chromosomes
and is also present on the normal chromosome 19. The GTG-banded karyotype for this
patient is 46,X,Y,t(11;19)(p11.2;p13.3).
