Author information

FGSC, Department of Microbiology University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas 66160, USA.


The FGSC, which began as a specialized repository for Neurospora and Aspergillus mutants, has grown to hold over 16,000 fungal strains as well as a variety of molecular genetics tools. The FGSC has expanded to include a variety of different fungi including Magnaporthe and Fusarium and is part of the Magnaporthe genome and knockout projects. The FGSC serves as a central clearing house for information in fungal genetics and has a role in facilitating the meetings of the Neurospora and fungal genetics communities. The FGSC is a model for the development of a culture collection much as Neurospora serves as a model organism.
