General Deposit Guidelines

General Deposit Guidelines

FBCC accepts algae, bacteria, and fungi that are valuable for research, industry, and education in fields such as taxonomy, genetics, biochemistry, and medicine. The deposited cultures are preserved at the FBCC, and both the depositors and researchers can obtain the deposited bioresources for research purposes. Depositing is free of charge; however, in the case of international deposits, the depositor is responsible for the international shipping costs of the resources.
