Objectives

RIKEN BioResource Center (BRC) was established in 2001 to improve human health, food production and environmental protection by promoting life science. In April 2002, RIKEN BRC engaged in the National Bioresource Project conducted by the Japanese government. The Experimental Plant Division of RIKEN BRC preserves more than 600,000 materials that include Arabidopsis seeds, plant cultured cells and plant cDNA clones. We have distributed more than 40,000 plant materials to the world research community.

Arabidopsis is an experimental plant that is used in many laboratories in the world because of its small size and short life cycle. The entire genome sequence of Arabidopsis has been completely characterized by the end of 20th century, and numbers of research resources such as mutant lines and full-length cDNA clones have been developed in the world. The experimental Plant Division is aiming to distribute original plant resources with the world-highest quality. Through the project, we intend to solve the global subjects such as food and environment through the acceleration of plant research.
