Depositing Materials

NIH Human Microbiome Project

NIAID has requested that BEI Resources establish and administer the Human Microbiome Project Repository for materials and reagents generated under the Human Microbiome Project (HMP). As part of the Human Microbiome Project, cultures of all organisms for which sequences are generated, are required to be deposited into the HMP Repository.  These materials will then be made available to the scientific community through the BEI Resources website. If you are interested in making a deposit, or would like more information, please contact us through the online form found on the Deposit Information page.

Once your request is received, you will be provided with an HMP tracking number as well as any shipping or regulatory assistance you may need. In addition, we ask that you submit Deposit Forms to indicate distribution and ownership rights for the material as well as any background scientific information you can provide. Please do not send materials without Deposit Forms or an HMP tracking number.
