Resources Center (BPRC)
PLEASE NOTE: BPRC has been closed for two weeks during the Holiday period and the the last FedEx shipments were sent on December 21, 2016. We have now re-opened per January 3, 2017. We wish all our customers a happy new year.
NOTE: Please click here to learn about our "BACPAC Services" program.
At BACPAC Services, we will offer a wide range of services from simple (such as BAC DNA preparations and BAC validation) to more complex (molecular construct design & generation, BAC modification, CRISPR/Cas9 and PiggyBac transposons). The primary objectives are to facilitate research projects by providing our expertise, allowing researchers to spend their efforts more productively. And yes, we will continue operating as a non-profit with discounts to academic researchers. We hope to have a separate BACPAC Service website up by January, 9, 2017. In the mean time, please email to bacpacresources.org with questions and suggestions for the kinds of services you are interested in.
PLEASE NOTE: OUR WEBSITE AND ONLINE ORDERING SYSTEM HAVE RECENTLY BEEN UPDATED TO PROVIDE INCREASED SECURITY. SOME ELEMENTS OF THE ONLINE ORDERING SYSTEM SOMETIMES MALFUNCTION. IF YOU EXPERIENCE PROBLEMS, PLEASE EMAIL TO BACPACORDERS@CHORI.ORG. ALSO, EMAIL ALL SCIENTIFIC QUESTIONS TO BACPAC@CHORI.ORG.

Mission. The "BACPAC
Resource Center" (BPRC) is located at the Children's
Hospital Oakland Research Institute in Oakland, California,
USA. BPRC is the distribution arm of an academic laboratory
and operates as a not-for-profit resource center. It uses
a cost-recovery mechanism to maintain and distribute (mostly
genomic) DNA clones. The distribution targets the academic
scientific community, although commercial [more]
licensing remains an option. Complete clone collections are in a microtiter dish format.
Such complete collections are infrequently made available to support customer's scientific plans
to analyze most clones in a specific clone library, for instance for whole-genome mapping & sequencing
projects. Please read our library array sharing policy for the logistics and availability of arrayed library copies.
Our site contains information on available genomic DNA libraries
consisting of BAC, PAC, or Fosmid Clones, some cDNA collections,
library screening reagents (high-density colony hybridization
filters, and BAC, PAC & fosmid cloning vectors. There
are also several sets of mouse knockout vector and reporter
constructs available from BPRC. Refer to our libraries
list (alphabetical order of library names) for webpages
describing each of our genomic DNA (BAC, PAC and fosmid) clone
collections and our cDNA clones. You want to see all mouse
libraries or zebrafish libraries without randomly searching
through the names? Then, please use the pages arranged in
order, permitting you to unfold branches of the phylogenetic
tree. See, for instance, the fully displayed mouse
used in our laboratory for the hybridization-based screening
of colony filters, purification of BAC and PAC DNA, and end-sequencing
methodologies, are also provided.
For more ordering information, please
view our ordering and pricing
information page and bank
payment options (PDF). For any clone orders, you will
need to know the name of the clones of interest. This
website does not have a comprehensive database of clone name.
How to find the clones names for specific genes? Please, look
for suggestions in the Questions & Answer
section, for instance for BAC & fosmid clones containing
specific human and mouse
