Whole Genome Profiling (WGP™) is a novel technology developed by KeyGene for building a physical map of Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) clones. It uses sequence based tags to characterize the BACs and anchor them in contigs based on tag overlap.
WGP generates short sequence tags that are spaced every ~2 Kb to 3 Kb across the BAC clones, providing unparalleled quality in contig building. This provides an excellent framework for the assembly of entire genomes – Whole Genome Sequence (WGS) information can be placed on the framework to establish a high quality genome sequence. BAC clones are positioned in contigs across the genome – gene cloning or re-sequencing projects in regions of interested are greatly facilitated by this.
