1. Long oligo synthesis:

>>>I URGENTLY need someone who is ROUTINELY SYNTHESIZING LONG OLIGOS (200-300
>>>mers) and is able to provide high quality gel-purified product PREFERABLY
>>>WITHIN CANADA.

2. cDNA library construction from cell free systems:
>Hi,
>
>Has any one tried to use "cell free system (in vitro)" to transcribe m-RNA from
>genomic DNA and then construct a cDNA library from it ? Is it possible ?

3. Non radioactive YAC screening

>Hi!
>
>Has anyone tried using the non-radioactive systems to probe HIGH-DENSITY YAC
COLONY filter (yeast)?
>We have conducted some pilot experiments with Digoxigenin system of
Boehringer-Mannheim and ECL
>and Fluorescein Gene Images labelling and detection system of Amersham
International.
>
>Our preliminary attempts have not been very successful as we get high
background, non-specific
>hybridisation, non-uniform signal strength and spots all over the membrane
(due to alkaline
>phosphatase?). There is also a major problem with the reproducibility
of the results. We have
>followed the protocols, precautions etc. as recommended by the manufacturers
of these kits.
>
>I am now interested in knowing if anyone else has tried these kits for YEAST
COLONY filter
>hybridisations and has had  any success? If a large number of replies are
received, I will summarise and re-post to this group.
