About the DGRC

The Drosophila Genomics Resource Center (DGRC) serves the Drosophila research community by: (a) collecting and distributing DNA clones and vectors; (b) collecting and distributing Drosophila cell lines; (c) developing and testing genomics technologies for use in Drosophila and assisting members of the research community in their use.

All orders must be initiated through this website.

cDNAs and Vectors

The DGRC has assembled a large (over 1,000,000 and expanding) inventory of DNA clones through the generosity of individual community members, the BDGP, and the CuraGen Corporation. The collection includes transformation vectors, cDNA clones, and the CuraGen yeast two-hybrid collection. Clone collections and common vectors are listed in the catalog.

All orders must be initiated through this website.

Cell Lines

The DGRC has sought to collect as many cell lines as possible representing D. melanogaster and closely related species. The collection currently includes 163 lines and will continue to grow.

Cell lines, with brief descriptions, are listed in the catalog.

All orders must be initiated through this website.

The DGRC is located within the Biology Department of Indiana University, and is supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (ORIP and NIGMS). The DGRC was created under the guidance of Dr Peter Cherbas and its work is directed by Dr Andrew Zelhof and an advisory board representing the Drosophila research community.


The DGRC is Hiring

The DGRC is searching for a new Associate Director of Cell Resources and Development. The work of DGRC scientists is wide ranging and includes management of collection contents (accessions, quality control), information management (biocuration, database construction and use, website development), scientific communication (user support, grant proposals and reporting, conference presentations, position papers, manuscripts), and business operations (personnel, user accounts, billing, financial recordkeeping and reporting).

The new DGRC Assistant Scientist will participate in all aspects of DGRC operations and eventually assume a primary leadership role in the organization. Candidates should have extensive knowledge of Drosophila tissue culture, Drosophila genetics, excellent communication skills, proven grantsmanship, well-developed organizational abilities, interest in a long-term position, and a keen desire to support the Drosophila research community.
