BCCM training on preservation of micro-organisms: a practical approach

14 September 2020 - 18 September 2020

The BCCM consortium organizes its 4th practical training on the preservation of micro-organism (fungi, bacteria, cyanobacteria, diatoms or other microalga) and a seminar on management of culture collections.

If you are a manufacturer, a scientist or a student and you want to develop your skills concerning the handling and the preservation of micro-organism, you are invited to take part in this training.

The BCCM training 2020 on preservation is organized during 5 days :

  • Day 1: (14th September 2020) (optional)

A full day seminar on management of culture collections.

  • Day 2-4: (15-17th September 2020): 3-day training on the handling and preservation:

A 3-day training is offered to teach the participants the different isolation, cultivation and preservation techniques, to practice these techniques and to discuss preservation aspects with the lecturers and other participants.

You have to choose a particular organism of interest. The possible choices are fungi, bacteria, cyanobacteria, diatoms or other microalga.

The number of participants is limited depending of the selected type of micro-organism to maximise hands-on time for the participants.

  • Day 5: (18th of September 2020) (optional)

By organizing 3 optional sessions, we would like to give you the opportunity to get first insights during a full day initiation on the cultivation and preservation of a micro-organism type different from the one selected for your 3-day practical training (DEMO’s).

Please note that the participation in one of the main 3-day courses is not mandatory to participate in one of the optional sessions.
