Difference between full length and standard cDNA lib?

Post by bbs_r » Thu Mar 30, 2006 4:31 am

Wikipedia saids:
Differently than standard cDNA libraries, in full-length cDNA libraries most of the cDNA represent complete original mRNA molecules. These are produced by implementation of normal methods for cDNA libraries preparation. The main technologies are known as "cap-trapper" and "oligo-capping".


So, my question is:
What is the difference between full length and standard cDNA lib?

Does the "full length" in this case means "including the introns"?

Thank you very much!
