Research Emphasis/Objectivesa collage of scientific images including a microscope, sample vials, and a CloneSaver Card

The Drosophila Genomics Resource Center (DGRC) supports an international community of scientists utilizing Drosophila melanogaster for biomedical research. The mission of the DGRC is to (1) provide the research community broad access to genomics resources by acquiring, archiving, curating, and distributing genomics resources, including, clones, vectors, and cell lines; (2) facilitate the effective use of the genomics resources by providing guidelines and support; and (3) improve the genomics resources and protocols available to the research community. By balancing the process of archiving and curating material, efficient distribution, and economical access, the effort of the DGRC increases both the scientific rigor and reproducibility of the collective work of the research community and protects against the loss of vital materials. 

Services Provided
