Welcome to the Bacillus Genetic Stock Center (BGSC) web site.
Our primary mission is to maintain genetically characterized strains, cloning vectors, and bacteriophage for the genus Bacillus and related organisms and to distribute these materials without prejudice to qualified scientists and educators throughout the world. Since 1978, the National Science Foundation has funded the activities of the BGSC. The Department of Microbiology in the College of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University provides facilities and administrative support. The Director of the BGSC is Dr. Daniel R. Zeigler.
Some have reported recent problems with the online ordering system. When we receive an order, we always acknowledge it within 24 hours. If you do not hear back from us within that time period, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know of the problem.
