You can search for strains/plasmids and order those resources from this site.
Please read 'About' and 'Distribution Procedure' for further information.

Effective October 1st, 2019, the consumption tax rate in Japan will raise from 8% to 10%. As a result of this tax increase, service fee will be charged for each bioresource provided. We appreciate your kind understanding and cooperation.
510 JPY per yeast stock or plasmid
620 JPY per full length cDNA or genome DNA clone
10,200 JPY - per DNA library.
In order to continue YGRC activity, your support and help are very important.
When you publish the outcome by using the NBRP yeast resources, please refer YGRC as the source of the yeast resource in your publication. For example, " (Resource name) was provided by the NBRP, Japan." In addition, please visit the "Research Paper Online Registration Site" and give us the related information after publication. Your cooperation will be highly appreciated.
