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 third hands-on training on preservation of micro-organisms (cyanobacteria, diatoms and (myco)bacteria), a seminar on management of a culture collection, and a seminar on gene technology.
All industrials, scientists and students who aim to develop their skills in micro-organism handling and preservation are invited to join the training.
