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 164 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.

DGRC Fall 2016 Newsletter

The DGRC has begun releasing a quarterly newsletter to update our community on new materials and services that we are able to offer. The Fall 2016 Newsletter is now available. The highlights of each newsletter are sent to our customers via email. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any point by following the link at the bottom of the email message.

S2 Renamed to S2-DGRC

To reduce confusion in the literature about mutliple isolates of the original Schneider's line 2, we have renamed the cell line "S2" as "S2-DGRC". For more information see our summary of S2 Isolates in the DGRC Collection.

Holiday Shipping

The DGRC will stop all shipments according to the following schedule:

On Monday, November 21 we will ship only to laboratories outside the United States, and there will be no shipments for the rest of that week. Shipping will resume November 28, and continue through last shipments before the New Year on December 12. Normal shipping will resume January 4, 2017.


Citing the DGRC

When publishing experiments using materials obtained from the DGRC please cite the Drosophila Genomics Resource Center, supported by NIH grant 2P40OD010949-10A1, in the acknowledgments. Your cooperation helps us when we need to renew our grant.
