Status of Collection: 
Active
Accession Status:

Collection Description: 

Approximately 90 insect cell lines from approximately 30 species (mostly order Lepidoptera), stored in liquid nitrogen and/or maintained as actively growing cultures. The majority of these are cell lines originally developed in ARS but approximately 25% are cell lines that were originally developed at other locations, including U.S. universities and foreign research locations. While ARS has all the rights and responsibilities inherent with the material developed in its laboratories, the authority to distribute material from other, non-government, researchers would need to be determined.
