Below are quick links to the resources available throughout this site.


Regarding strain requests: The Blattner lab is closed; strains, clones, and vectors from its collection are no longer available. Information about their construction remains posted for those who obtained them from us in the past. Anyone who received these materials from us is welcome to redistribute them.

The sequenced E. coli K-12 strain MG1655 is available from both ATCC and the Coli Genetic Stock Center at Yale. If you are looking for the reduced genome E. coli strains such as MDS™42, they have been licensed to and are sold by Scarab Genomics. For more information on reduced genome strain availability, please visit their website.
