Screening a cDNA Library

Screening a cDNA Library

for use with HybriZAP zebrafish cDNA libraries


cDNA library screening allows detection of expressed genes for subsequent cloning and sequencing.

Selecting a Library

Currently, our lab has access to cDNA libraries from three developmental time points. Choose the appropriate library for when you expect your message of interest is expressed.

Overview of Procedures

  1. Titer the library to determine the concentration of infectious phage.
  2. Plate and lift the phage particles.
  3. Hybridize the immobilized cDNA with labeled probe.
  4. Pick positive plaques.
  5. Cycle through steps 2-4 until a single cDNA containing phage is isolated, generally three cycles.
