microRNA library creation-IDT Introduces MiRCatT Small RNA Cloning System

Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) has today announced the availability of its new proprietary miRCatT small RNA cloning system. The unique kit-based resources make the creation of small RNA (including miRNAs, piRNAs and endogenous siRNAs) libraries from any primary RNA source, highly time and cost efficient with peerless flexibility and consistency. The new miRCat system permits cloning of very rare small RNAs and takes into account the natural variability in structure and sequence between species. Conveniently, it is compatible with most existing standard laboratory protocols for processes such as RNA extraction, purification and cloning. These features make the miRCat small RNA cloning system the ideal solution for all small RNA research. Full Story..
