Resource:Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center

Name: Resource:Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center
Description:

The BDSC collects, maintains, and distributes genetically defined strains of Drosophila melanogaster with significant research value.
Emphasis is placed on genetic tools that are useful to a broad range of investigations. These include basic stocks of flies used in genetic analysis such as marker, balancer, mapping, and transposon-tagging strains; mutant alleles of identified genes, including a large set of transposable element insertion alleles; defined sets of deficiencies and a variety of other chromosomal aberrations; engineered lines for somatic and germline clonal analysis; GAL4 and UAS lines for targeted gene expression; enhancer trap and lacZ-reporter strains with defined expression patterns for marking tissues; and a collection of transposon-induced lethal mutations.
Approximately 29,000 fly strains are currently available. Up-to-date stock lists are available for searching, browsing, or downloading/copying at the Internet site. An order form is available on the same site. One small subculture is provided of each requested stock. Larger quantities of animals cannot be provided by the center. Requests may be submitted via a web-based automated ordering system. Stock center scientists are available to answer questions about center stocks, use of the database, or general questions about Drosophila genetics for researchers new to the field. New users of the collection must contact the center for a Bloomington user number (BUN) before ordering stocks.

Sponsors: The Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center collects, maintains and distributes Drosophila melanogaster strains for research. The Center is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation's Living Stock Collections Program (Grant No. 0841154), the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Research Resources (via NSF Grant No. 0841154), the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (via NSF Grant No. 0841154), the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (via NSF Grant No. 0841154, Indiana University, and fees from users of the collection (50% of Center direct costs are provided by user fees).
