The Fungal Genetics Stock Center has preserved and distributed strains of genetically characterized fungi since 1960. The collection includes over 20,000 accessioned strains of classical and genetically engineered mutants of key model, human, and plant pathogenic fungi. These materials are distributed as living stocks to researchers around the world.
Molecular materials are listed both in the catalog and online. (The old catalog is still available, but has not been updated since 2006.) The FGSC is also listed in the international bioportal, Straininfo.net and GCM.
