The National Tetrahymena Stock Center, located at Cornell University, is a centralized repository and distribution site for a variety of wild type, mutant, and genetically engineered strains developed by the Tetrahymena research community. The Stock Center accepts deposition of scientifically useful strains, and provides worldwide access to all of the strains in the collection.

The Tetrahymena Stock Center website also provides basic information on Tetrahymena growth and maintenance, and provides links to other Tetrahymena related information, including genome resources and basic introductions to Tetrahymena biology and genetics.

Funding for the Stock Center is provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Grant 2 P40 OD010964-10 J.

Please remember to acknowledge the Tetrahymena Stock Center when you use materials either directly from the collection, or derived from the collection. This is our most important way of demonstrating the value of the materials at the Center.
