These fees were set at the October 27, 2018 FGSC Advisory Board meeting and supersede any other fee list.
All orders are to be pre-paid, or accompanied by an institutional purchase order. Materials will not be sent to personal addresses.
Credit card orders: After you place your material request, we will prepare an invoice and send it to you by e-mail. After you pay online we will send the materials.
Requests by Purchase order: After we receive your formal university purchase order, we will prepare your materials and send the invoice to the appropriate address at the same time as we send the materials. You may send your purchase order as an e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org (pdf or JPG). Checks should be made payable to the Fungal Genetics Stock Center and be drawn on a US Bank.
Payments by electronic fund transfer (Wire transfer) will include a $35 fee and must be coordinated with the FGSC staff.
Materials are for research use only and not for human consumption or for preparation of any drugs, cosmetics, or nutritional supplements. Genetically modified materials must be maintained in appropriate containment and may not be released into the environment. Orders by third-parties are not allowed.
All of the materials in the FGSC collection are maintained in trust for the public and while we test every strain, clone and library to the best of our ability, we make no warranty as to their suitability for any use. All materials are sent on an as-is basis and we limit our liability to the fees received. Our MTA, formally a "click-through MTA," is part of the online material request form. Listing of materials on the FGSC website in no way obliges the FGSC to provide these materials.
If you receive materials from the FGSC, you are agreeing to cite the following article: McCluskey K, Wiest A, Plamann M. 2010. The Fungal Genetics Stock Center: a repository for 50 years of fungal genetics research. J Biosci. 35(1):119-26.
Permits and Import Fees
The FGSC pricing scheme is designed to help us to cover the cost of curating, preparing, and delivering materials. The FGSC can only send materials because of the long support of the US National Science Foundation although we no longer receive support from the NSF.
Fungal strains from the FGSC are generally sent as growing cultures.
Plasmid, cosmid, fosmid, or BAC clones are usually shipped after
overnight growth and will arrive as a living E. coli stab on LB medium
within the US.
Please read the WFCC statement on shipping biological materials
The FGSC is part of the Kansas State University and as such is a non-profit organization.
If you anticipate needs other than those described above, please contact the FGSC
