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 (, and ultimately on the website which will be designed for the Stock Center.
