To DGRC users, Drosophila researchers,

Drosophila Genetic Resource Center, Kyoto Institute of Technology will 
start to charge fees for shipping fly stocks. The fee consists of an 
annual registration fee, cost of food, vials, plugs, a box and handling 
cost per shipment and postage.

We accept payments only with a credit card (VISA or Master Card at 
present). We run online payment system by credit card through a 
cryptographically protected connection, SSL (Secure Socket Layer).

Please refer to Payment and Fee Information at


1. We temporally close the server (user-registration, search and order) 
for the renewal of our ordering system. The new DGRC web site will be 
open on 17 April 2006.

2. Before ordering fly stocks, please register yourself as a DGRC user. 
  We must ask previous DGRC users, who have already hold DGRC ID, to 
enter the Web site and register again in order to obtain new DGRC user 
ID. DGRC ID and password will be sent automatically in several seconds 
upon the registration.

3. Most of you may need transgenic flies. During registration, please
carefully read questions about the use of transgenic flies. We will not 
send transgenic flies to the person who has not completed all the 
necessary questionnaires about your laboratory situations. Transgenic 
flies of DGRC are under the regulation of Japanese laws and the 
Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety of the Convension on Biological Diversity.
