ABRC relies on the donation of resources by the community and appreciates any stocks that you are willing to donate. We welcome seed resources of Arabidopsis and all Brassicas, plasmids and other resources of any plant species, as well as educational modules.
Detailed guidelines regarding suitability of stock for inclusion in the collection are provided in our Stock Acquisition and Deacquisition Policy. The appropriate quantities, format, and forms for donation of different types of stocks are outlined below.
Whenever possible, ABRC will pay the shipping charges for donations of all stocks, including seeds, plasmids and education kits. Please contact ABRC for a prepaid shipping label before sending your donation.
All donations will be released within 2-3 weeks, unless you are notified. If we must amplify your donation, it will be up to six months before we can make the stock(s) available for ordering.
By donating you can earn Points redeemable for free stocks from ABRC with our Stocks for Stocks Rewards Program.
ABRC accepts all unique Arabidopsis and Brassica seed stocks. Seeds should be sent in tubes with threaded lids to prevent them from opening during transport. Send as much seed as you can spare.
Please download and complete the appropriate seed donation form below, and submit it electronically as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.

ABRC accepts characterized plasmids, libraries, host strains, antibodies, cell cultures and other resources of any species of plant, providing that we have the ability to accommodate them.
