don't know their location (I ran across it once using Gopher).  I don't 
know what their policy on getting pathogens though and I assume that you 
will have to get special permits for sending something like that in

ATCC's website is at http://www.atcc.org. It has all kinds of information 
pertaining to regulations and forms required for purchasing and sending 
pathogenic microorganisms through the mail in addition to a searchable 
database on specific organisms and prices for each one.
