National BioResource Project - Yeast
You can search for strains/plasmids and order those resources from this site.
Please read 'About' and 'Distribution Procedure' for further information.

In order to continue YGRC activity, your support and help are very important.
When you publish the outcome by using the NBRP yeast resources, please refer YGRC as the source of the yeast resource in your publication. For example, " (Resource name) was provided by the NBRP, Japan." In addition, please visit the "Research Paper Online Registration Site" and give us the related information after publication. Your cooperation will be highly appreciated.
