The CRBIP (Biological Resource Center of Institut Pasteur) holds collections of biological materials and the information associated with them.
A number of controls are performed to ensure the compliance of the biological material with the properties described by the applicant. This information is grouped in a database (BRC LIMS software) and in a web catalog covering each collection.
CRBIP Historical background
The deposit of a plasmid or transposon must be accompanied by a completed "deposit of plasmids or transposons form" indicating the culture conditions.
The deposit of a plasmid or transposon in the CIP is free. The CIP reserves the right to accept or to refuse the deposition of plasmids or transposons. All demand for a deposit of a plasmid or transposon in the CIP must be formulated in writing, enclosing the publication to be submitted to enable the CIP to carry out the necessary controls.
