Versailles Arabidopsis Stock Center
Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin

The Versailles Arabidopsis Stock Center supplies seeds to the international research community. It is based in Versailles (France), at the Jean-Pierre Bourgin Institute (IJPB) of the National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE).

Seed stocks available for distribution include:

NEW! The whole-genome sequences of the HEM lines are available (Carrère et al., 2023). The ATHEM web interface provides the community with the raw sequences, SNP calling results and a web interface to search for SNPs in given HEM lines or genes.

Multiplication and conservation of seed stocks are conducted according to defined protocols. Backups of stocks are maintained to ensure preservation. An identifying number is assigned to each seed batch and is associated to a barcode that allows a computerized follow-up from sowing to distribution.
