Many organisms provide excellent models for studying disease states or for exploring the molecular adaptations that allow cells and organisms to cope with or survive different stresses. The construction of a cDNA library and subsequent screening for genes of interest allows researchers to select for genes that are likely to play key roles in the regulation or response to the condition or stress of interest, those that may not be expressed (or exist) in other systems. Determination of the open reading frame(s) of novel genes, and extensive analysis of the proteins they encode, can open up new avenues of research and promote intelligent design of downstream projects.
