Download SGSC Strain Catalogue

The SGSC maintains a Macintosh-based database containing detailed information on strains held by the stock centre. Researchers can now download an updated SGSC database in either FileMaker Pro 5 format or as an Excel 98 table.

* Files 1 and 2 are maintained as compressed StuffIt archives and therefore will download quickly and decompress using StuffIt Expander. Researchers who do not wish to install StuffIt Expander can download the uncompressed Excel table (File 3) or visit our on-line search.

Get StuffIt Expander.
The files which are currently available:

1. A FileMaker Pro 5 database of strain information (Catalogue-FMPro5). Strain information is formatted for easy searching and printing and is available in single strain and table formats. The database design and strain records cannot be modified. FileMaker Pro 5 is required for the database to operate. After downloading, upon opening the file in FileMaker Pro 5 you will prompted for a password, leave this field blank and press "enter" to have access to the full strain database.

2. An Excel 98 table of strain information (Catalogue-Excel). This file is formatted to be used directly in Excel or saved as a tab delimited file to import into another database system. This file is modifiable to allow researchers to sort and export data.

3. An uncompressed Excel 98 table of strain information (Catalogue-Excel-Full). When link is "left-click" selected the catalogue will download an Excel spreadsheet into a new window. When link is "right-click" selected, the user can save the catalogue directly onto their computer.
