Culture Collections

Culture Collections of Protozoa and Algae

The National Center for Research Resources at the NIH has funded a Stock Center for Tetrahymena thermophila at Cornell University. This center will merge many of the large Tetrahymena collections that currently exist, and serve as a repository for new strains as they are developed. These will be made available to the community at large at a nominal cost. Further information regarding the development of Stock Center will be made available via the Tetrahymena listserve hosted by UGA (http://listserv.uga.edu/archives/ciliatemolbio-l.html), and ultimately on the website which will be designed for the Stock Center.
