We are looking for the requests from users of human iPS cells

  • Analysis of differentiation of certain iPS cell lines with micropatterning method
  • Generation of a plasmid construct to express some marker gene (such as GFP) under the promoter of a specific gene
  • Generation of a cell line in which a specific gene deletion (knockout) or a specific gene mutation is introduced in the iPS cells derived from healthy individuals etc.

Methanogenic archaea: list of the JCM strains and a recipe for the preparation of anaerobic culture media are released

Methanogenic archaea are strict anaerobes producing methane as a major metabolite, and they have drawn attention in research areas of the environmental conservation. JCM has now released the above list and recipe in order to support researches using the methanogenic archaea.
