National Institute for Basic Biology maintains MEDAKA resources for research and developing technologies regarding biology, medical science, supplies and environment. Also, we collect, preserve, and provide standard strains , inbred strains, mutants, wild stocks, and related species of MEDAKA as live-resource. Moreover, we provide genome sequence and BAC/EST genome resource. National Institute for Basic Biology and Niigata University practices those provisions.
|1) National Institute for Basic Biology||
a) Conservation and provision of standard strains, some inbred strains, natural mutant strains, transgenic strains, and induced mutant strains (only provided as embryos).
b) Collection and provision of ESTs/full length cDNAs/BAC /fosmid clones.
c) Update and provision of the genomic information on the genome sequences, transcriptional start site information, BAC/Fosmid clone linking information and in silico predicted genes
|2) Niigata University||
a) Conservation and provision of wild populations, mutant strains of sex determination and differentiation, and related species as a collaborative project with Southeast Asian countries.
b) Conservation and provision of some natural mutant and inbred strains as a backup for the core facility.
