  • If you cannot find bioresources necessary for your research in our catalog or any other bioresource centers, please contact an appropriate Division. We will be glad to be your help.
  • In case that you need a novel bioresource that has never been developed, you and RIKEN BRC can develop such a bioresource by collaborative effort. Please propose the collaborative development to us. We are looking forward to hearing your proposal.

Search in individual Resource Division Website

If you know the type of bioresource you wish to search or obtain, we recommend that you search from the website of each Division. You can search by more detailed conditions.
