If you’re wondering where the virtual culture collection is, well, we haven’t published it yet. So far we have had 1 (one!) submission to the culture collection. It seems to me that a database of one item isn’t all that useful so we’ll hold off on this idea until we can get some more input. It seemed like such a good idea during the Colletotrichum workshop…
To register cultures with the virtual culture collection, complete this form. If you have many cultures to register, you may use the Registry Template (an excel spreadsheet) and upload it using the form below. The information you submit will be included in the next update of the culture list.
Please note that we do not actually maintain living culture collection, so do not send us your cultures. The virtual culture collection serves as a central repository of information, so people needing cultures for their research can easily connect with the culture maintainers and arrange for shipping.
If you have any suggestions about information that should be included in the virtual culture collection, please let us know!
