Training on the preservation of microorganisms

The Belgian Consortium of Culture Collections of Microorganisms (BCCM) is organizing a training on the preservation of bacteria, cyanobacteria or microalgae from the 17th to 20th of September 2019.

More details on the programme are given on the BCCM website.

Note that this training is modular, with a main ‘hands on’ training of 3 days on one type of biological material and one optional day dedicated either to another type of biological material (demos) or to a seminar on the practical management of culture collections (including Quality Management System and the legal requirements) or a seminar on gene technology tools.
