Brassicaceae Material Collection
As more and more taxa of Brassicaceae are becoming models for studying various evolutionary and developmental aspects, availability of relevant material is a matter of increasing importance. Germplasm collection in BrassiBase includes a set of ~ 300 species covering all evolutionary lineages within the family and about 40 of 49 currently recognized tribes. Accessions (mostly of wild origin) from which genome size data and chromosome counts are obtained, are documented by seeds, herbarium specimens, silica-dried leaf material and – whenever possible – images.
This tool is fully accessible for registered users only.
Free access to and ordering of seed/leaf material is restricted to research groups within the DFG priority program SPP1529. For access to complete information about collection specimens and availability registration is mandatory. Inquiries should be sent via email and regular mail. You will be informed about short-term availability and costs covering our primary expenses to maintain this service (at least € 30 per sample). All stock orders require the acceptance of rules and regulations of CBD (Convention on Biological Diversity). Details can be found here.
