Find Strains, Plasmids, and Genes

Reminder: Always revive new organisms according to an established protocol and archive a lab stock of the original freeze-dried culture after it has been resuspended, in addition to the initial culture, and cultures from picked colonies.

General culture collections

Strain collections for specific species

Plasmid collections

Advice for choosing strains

  • Whenever possible, choose a strain that has a complete genome sequence available. You can check by searching on the NCBI Genome Page. After you do a search, be sure to click on the link by "Organism Overview ; Genome Assembly and Annotation report [XXXX]" to see a table of all XXXX of the genomes with sequencing data. Ideally, you want ones with a level of "complete".
