Individual lines (mutants and transgenic lines)

You can search for Arabidopsis mutant and transgenic lines via the web catalog. Detailed information can be found in the manuscript published by the depositor. If you have any questions, please contact


(1) Some of the lines are categorized as genetically modified organisms. Please check with your local authorities as applicants may need to obtain any permits required by any type of regulation or law before ordering seed lines. It is also the responsibility of the importer to complete the customs procedure for importing biological material. Please let us know if you need a quarantine certificate to import Arabidopsis seeds. RIKEN BRC cannot guarantee for any loss or damage to the material during the customs procedures.

(2) Transgenic lines are usually a mixture of homozygous and heterozygous seeds. Some seeds also have more than one copy of the transgene. In some cases the expression level of the transgene is suppressed by co-suppression. Please consider these possibilities when using the seeds.

(3) In response to the deposition of mutant and transgenic lines, RIKEN BRC performs amplification and QC on newly deposited seed lines. After the seeds are harvested, they are added to the resource catalogue. If you cannot find the line you are interested in, please email your request to
