Microbial Storage

   The microbial storage facility at NBT has two functions: to promote in-house research on microbes, including fungi, by NBT and BIOTEC researchers, and to serve as a “warehouse” for storage and management of microbial collections by outside partner agencies and researchers as well as by NSTDA researchers. Much in-house research is carried out on tiny fungal species that infect and kill insects, on sea fungi, and on free-living fungi and soil microbes of all kinds. The ”warehouse” function involves the long-term maintenance of cultures and verification of their purity. Access to and research on warehoused collections requires permission of the donors or owners of their particular collections. Much collaborative research is carried out on collections of important species maintained over the long term that will bring benefits to Thailand and the world at large
