The VDRC is a non-profit repository for biological materials and maintains and transfers them as a service to the scientific community. In addition to maintaining and distributing transgenic fly stocks and plasmids owned by the VDRC, we also maintain resources owned by other organizations. These "Other Resources" are deposited with VDRC by a "Provider Scientist" and distributed to the scientific community by VDRC on behalf of the "Provider Organization" via the regular VDRC webshop.
Please acknowledge the appropriate people
In any publications or patent applications resulting from the use of "Other Resources" please be sure to give credit to the correct people. You must acknowledge the Provider as the source and VDRC as the supplier of the resource and cite relevant publications from the Provider Scientist in any publication.
What "Other Resources" are maintained by VDRC?
Material deposited with VDRC by other "Provider Organizations", and which the "Provider Scientist" wishes to make available to registered VDRC users, can be found in the Other Resources section. The resources can be either transgenic flies or plasmid DNA and currently include mutant alleles, tagged constructs, RNAi lines, reporters and CRISPR/Cas9 plasmids.
A brief description of each resource, including its name, VDRC ID, Provider Scientist, Provider Organization and associated publications, is displayed by clicking on each library and further information about each resource can be found in its "Detailed View" by clicking on the VDRC ID.
How to find "Other Resources"?
On this homepage (www.vdrc.at) you can browse Other Resources for a list of the currently available fly stocks and plasmids. Alternatively, you can use the "Quick Search" tool to search by resource name (such as the name given to the resource in an associated publication), VDRC ID, Provider Scientist or Provider Organization.
