Resource Collection


  • Arabidopsis Education Kits ( Support service )

    Our education kits, which utilize Arabidopsis to demonstrate key concepts of biology, are distributed all over the world free of charge.

  • Green K-12+ initiative ( Training service )

    The ABRC has made plants an integral part of the Columbus area K-12 curriculum through the Green K-12+ initiative, a pilot program composed of a series of user-friendly exercises that help explain basic scientific concepts to students, approved by the Columbus City Schools Curriculum Committee. ABRC is an official partner with the Columbus City Schools.
