DNA Libraries

The Importance Of Vectors, Artificial Chromosome Vectors And Genomic Libraries, Complementary Dna Libraries

DNA libraries, like conventional libraries, are used to collect and store information. In DNA libraries, the information is stored as a set of DNA molecules, each of which contains biological sequences that can be used for a variety of applications. All DNA libraries are collections of DNA fragments that represent a particular biological system of interest. By analyzing the DNA from a particular organism or tissue, researchers can answer a variety of important questions. The two most common uses for these DNA collections are DNA sequencing and gene cloning.
