The Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center (ABRC) was established at Ohio State with funding from the National Science Foundation in 1991. Faculty, staff and students collect, preserve, amplify and distribute the seeds, DNA, protein and other resources of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana to researchers worldwide.

“We want to give students an opportunity to appreciate the potential of plants to address critical global issues, such as food and fuel crises and climate change by performing fun and exciting hands-on exercises.”
