The correct preservation of micro-organisms is of the utmost importance. Culture collections are experts in the preservation and safekeeping of biological material. They use the most adequate method for each material type.
The BCCM consortium organizes its fourth hands-on training on preservation of micro-organisms (cyanobacteria, diatoms and (myco)bacteria and fungi) and a seminar on management of a culture collection.
All industrials, scientists and students who aim to develop their skills in micro-organism handling and preservation are invited to join the training.
