Instructions For Ordering Rice Transposable Element Insertion Lines

Ordering In The United States

To receive seeds, two steps are required:

We ask that seed orders be placed only by a Principal Investigator, or Project Leader.

1. Due to the fact that you are ordering transgenic crop seeds, the USDA /APHIS requires you to file an interstate movement notification. We cannot send seed to you in the United States without your having a movement notification document approved by APHIS and submitted to us. (Guidance for this step follows below ).

2. Recipient will have to certify that the Pathogen Status Disclaimer has been read and that Recipient will abide by conditions of the Distribution Agreement. (This is done by submission of a seed order.)

You need to download the APHIS permit, add your specific information , and submit it to APHIS by following the instructions on page 3.

We provide at the button below an old template movement notification document that has all of the pertinent information about the rice insertion lines already filled in. It covers all of our insertion lines.

Once APHIS receives your notification, they will notify your State agency, and send you an approval. The process should take from ten working days to two weeks to complete.

After you receive approval from APHIS, send or FAX a copy of it to:

Adrian Garcia
Plant Biology
University of California
One Shields Avenue
Davis CA 95616 USA
FAX 530-752-5410

You can then order online,
or send in a written order along with the approval document.
