International Moss Stock Center (IMSC)

The IMSC offers research institutions, industrial enterprises and other facilities the possibility to store back-up moss samples in its cryobank. For researchers, it provides accession numbers of their newly established mutants or newly collected ecotypes to be included into their publications.

The IMSC is developed, hosted and managed by the ReskiLab and collects, preserves and distributes moss mutants, transgenic lines and ecotypes.

The model organism database was launched in 2003 and has been serving as the central knowledge and data base throughout the genome annotation history of Physcomitrella patens. Ever since its launch has aimed for continuous integration of published data from public repositories and collaborators around the world, including important milestones such as the first draft genome, the genetic map and the complete history of genome annotations from the very first (V1.0) to the most recent version (V3.3).

As such an essential repository it provides newcomers with a single, primary interface to explore the features of this flagship plant genome. At the same time, it provides the established scientific community with an up-to-date resource for comparative analyses. Key features include an integrative genome browser, collaborative annotation tools and a wiki as the central documentation platform. was initially funded by the German Research Foundation DFG and is hosted, maintained and constantly improved by the Chair of Plant Biotechnology at the University of Freiburg, Germany.
