Objectives

The cellular slime molds are soil amoebae feeding on bacteria and proliferating by fission. Upon starvation, however, they gather and construct multicellular fruiting bodies composed of spore masses and stalks to lift them up. Dictyostelium discoideum, the most widely used species of the cellular slime molds, has contributed to both basic and applied sciences as a model organism, due to his unique life cycle, development of molecular biological techniques and availability of the genome information.

University of Tsukuba and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology collaborate as NBRP Resource Centers to take care of the biological resources of the social amoebae in Japan, and distribute them upon request from domestic and oversea users. We also acknowledge the users’ deposit of their newly developed strains.
