Phage Directory: From Phage Therapy to a Repository of Phage Information

Posted by Jennifer Tsang on Jan 10, 2019 9:38:39 AM

When Jessica Sacher, a microbiologist from the University of Alberta, saw that scientists were using Twitter to find phages to treat an antibiotic resistant bacterial infection, she shared that tweet with Jan Zheng, a UX designer that she knew. “We had actually met at a lindy hop swing dance event,” Zheng says (networking can happen anywhere!). The pair quickly teamed up to create Phage Directory in a whirlwind three days in November 2017.

Arabidopsis in Education: How the Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center Brings Plant Science to Life

Posted by Guest Blogger on Apr 12, 2018 9:02:19 AM

This post was contributed by guest blogger Courtney Price, the Education & Outreach Specialist for the Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center and the Center for Applied Plant Sciences at The Ohio State University.

Established in 1991, the Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center (ABRC) is one of two global stock centers for Arabidopsis thaliana (Arabidopsis). Our mission is to collect, preserve, reproduce and distribute seeds, DNA and other resources for Arabidopsis and related species. Located at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, ABRC ships more than 100,000 samples to researchers and educators in 60 countries each year.

The Developmental Studies Hybridoma Bank: Over 25 Years of Antibody Sharing

Posted by Guest Blogger on Mar 10, 2015 10:25:06 AM

The following post was contributed by the Developmental Studies Hybridoma Bank.


Antibodies are the most widely used class of protein-binding reagents. In the lab, their binding specificity allows scientists to target proteins of interest for labeling, quantification, purification, chromatin immunoprecipitation and more. The Developmental Studies Hybridoma Bank (DSHB), directed by David R. Soll, is a repository for monoclonal antibodies, distributing over 3,000 antibodies and associated hybridoma cell lines.
