Objectives

National Bioresource Project started in 2002 with support from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, Sports and Technology. The nematode C. elegans is among the organisms to be collected, stored and distributed. C. elegans is a good model organism suitable for life science research. Genome and EST information have revealed almost all the genes on the chromosomes (Science 282, 2012-2018, 1998). This project aims to collect nematode bioresources and provide them to researchers so that studies using the nematode are promoted. In order to achieve this goal, the core facility (Tokyo Women's Medical University School of Medicine) receives advice from the researchers community Our undertakings include collecting, storing and distributing deletion mutants of C. elegans.

This project is also proposing that information about promoters and markers useful for C. elegans experiments be collected.
