I am working on understanding the protein folding of an essential 
protein, called biotin ligase in bacteria and holocarboxylase 
synthetase in mammalian and animal systems. I am currently interested 
in isolating the cDNA for this gene  from C. elegans for 
complementing some E. coli mutants that I have. The gene is about 
3.1kb long. As I have no experience whatsoever on C. elegans, I was 
wondering if there is anyone who would be willing to provide me with 
a cDNA or mRNA library of C. elegans or if there are any cell lines 
of C. elegans that I can use for mRNA isolation.

Thank you!
