|  Revision of Distribution Fees for the Bioresources in RIKEN BRC

 We provide bioresources to scientists not only in Japan but also
throughout the world with minimum fees that solely make up for
preparation and handling costs of the requested bioresources. Due to
changes in prices and protocols since the last revision of our fees, it
has become necessary to revise them again.
 We sincerely hope that these revisions will not inconvenience our users.
We very much appreciate your understanding and cooperation, and are
looking forward to receiving your requests for our bioresources.

 The revised distribution fees will apply to all orders for bioresources
after from Tuesday April 1, 2014.

Distribution Fees

|  The 2014 Annual Meeting of Japan Society for Bioscience,
|  Biotechnology and Agrochemistry

 The 2014 Annual Meeting of Japan Society for Bioscience, Biotechnology
and Agrochemistry will be held in Tokyo from March 27 through to 30.
It is our pleasure to invite you to visit "National BioResource Project
(NBRP)" booth in Meiji University Ikuta Campus that will be held on

|  Mouse strains for freeze preservation

  Since a sufficient number of frozen stocks have been preserved, live
mice of the following strains will be discontinued soon.
  It will take more than 3 months to recover live mice from frozen stock.
Therefore, please inform us as soon as possible if you plan to use the
mice and request them alive.
