Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) - persistent and unique identifiers for referencing a research resource. A critical goal of the Resource Identification Initiative (RII) is the widespread adoption of RRIDs to cite resources in the biomedical literature and other places that reference their generation or use. RRIDs use established community identifiers where they exist, and are cross-referenced in our system where more than one identifier exists for a single resource.

The complete RRID for an entry should contain the RRID and AGSC prefixes to distinguish from other animal resources. So for the 5-8 cm juvenile wild type, the complete RRID that would need to be included in a publication is:RRID:AGSC_101J.

 

**Live material is available to qualified researchers and/or instructors only**

and are thus not sorted for quality; viability varies.
