cDNA library


Also found in: Wikipedia.

cDNA li·brar·y

a collection of copy (cDNA) fragments that have been made by reverse transcriptase from the mRNA of a particular cell, organ, or organism.

cDNA library

a collection of cDNA CLONES representing the RNA molecules present in a particular preparation obtained from a given CELL or TISSUE TYPE. Where the library is from a particular cell type it will be representative only of a selection of the total GENES present, because only some of those genes will be expressed to produce mRNA. see CDNA. Compare GENE BANK.

If (and that's a critical caveat) the cDNA library used for WES comes from the cell population of interest, this provides a snapshot not of the actual non-exonic sequences but of their significant effects.
The anagen skin cDNA library of Liaoning cashmere goat was constructed according to the previous study [25].
Pre-procaeridin cDNAs were consistently cloned from the skin secretion cDNA library, and each encoded a single copy of Caeridin, which were named Caeridin-1, S5-Caeridin-1, and Caeridin-a1 shown in Figure 1.
