|  RIKEN BRC signs GFP Transfer License with GE Healthcare Bio-Sciences
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  RIKEN BioResource Center (RIKEN BRC) and GE Healthcare Bio-Sciences
(GE) concluded an agreement for the transfer of bioresources containing
green fluorescent protein (GFP bioresources) to investigators at
academic institutions, on July 12, 2011. By generosity of GE, RIKEN BRC
is able to distribute the GFP bioresources to universities and agencies
of a government (Federal or State) for non-profit and academic research
purposes without license fees. GFP bioresources include mice,
Arabidopsis thaliana, cells, and genetic clones that incorporate GFP.
We hope that you will make use of these resources.

|  Mouse strains for freeze preservation
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------

  Since a sufficient number of embryos 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.
