GeneCorner core plasmid
- the plasmid has been subjected to the following quality control tests: purity, viability and authenticity (analysis of the restriction enzyme pattern, in case sufficient sequence data are available);
- the information related to the plasmid has been processed according to European norms and the resulting full dataset is available, as well as the circular map and the compiled nucleotide sequence file in case sufficient sequence data are available;
- the plasmid can be released on receipt of an order.
GeneCorner non-core plasmid
- the plasmid has been subjected to the following quality control tests: purity and viability. The restriction enzyme pattern has still to be analysed (authenticity test);
- the information related to the plasmid has been processed according to European norms. At least the minimal dataset is available at the moment;
- the authenticity test and the full dataset processing are foreseen on receipt of an order, which may take one to three weeks. The plasmid will only be released if positive authenticity results are obtained.
GST project plasmid

- A GeneCorner '.gb' file contains the nucleotide sequence of a plasmid in GenBank format with additional layout formatting data for the VectorNTI software (DNA/RNA documents). This format can also be opened with a common text editor (e.g. Notepad, Word, ...).
- A GeneCorner '.txt' file contains the nucleotide sequence of a plasmid in EMBL format.
BCCM/GeneCorner makes use of the following sources to compile its plasmid sequences:
- the depositor's information
- online sequence databases
- published literature
- own sequence analysis data
- other sources
By default, BCCM/GeneCorner plasmids are not sequence validated. The compiled sequence is checked by restriction site analysis. BCCM/GeneCorner cannot guarantee that the compiled sequence of a particular GeneCorner plasmid corresponds to the sequence of that plasmid obtained from another source.
- A depositor's '.gb' file contains the nucleotide sequence of a plasmid in GenBank format as submitted by the depositor. This sequence has not been verified or modified by BCCM/GeneCorner.
