Cryptococcus gattii (C. gattii), strain R265 was isolated from a human on Vancouver Island, Canada during the outbreak that began in the late 1990?s.

C. gattii, strain R265, was obtained from the laboratory of J. Heitman at Duke University Medical Center as part of the Broad Fungal Genome Initiative (Broad Institute) and characterized as virulent in mice and the greater wax moth, Galleria mellonella. Strain R265 is a wild type, MAT α, strain and is one of two strains utilized to produce a congenic pair. The complete genome sequence of C. gattii, strain R265 is available (GenBank: AAFP00000000).

Each vial of NR-50184 contains approximately 0.5 mL of yeast culture in 20% glycerol.
