MNA CIBAN Italian Antarctic Bacterial Culture Collection

Latest version published by Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA, Section of Genoa) on Feb 11, 2019 Italian National Antarctic Museum (MNA, Section of Genoa)

The Italian Collection of Antarctic Bacteria (Collezione Italiana Batteri Antarctici; CIBAN) was established in 1989 at the Department of Chemical, Biological, Pharmaceutical and Environmental Sciences of the University of Messina. CIBAN is one of the few collections in the world dedicated to Antarctic bacteria and, since its inception, it has grown to include 515 cold-adapted strains belonging to 69 Genera. Many of these strains derive from the Terra Nova Bay marine area and hav been extracted from seawater, sediment, and benthic organisms. CIBAN also hosts bacterial isolates from the continent.

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 515 records.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Title MNA CIBAN Italian Bacterial Culture Collection
Funding The culture collection is supported by the National Program for Antarctic Research of Italy (PNRA).
Study Area Description Antarctic continent and the Southern Ocean

The personnel involved in the project:

Curator
Stefano Schiaparelli
Curator
Angelina Lo Giudice

Sampling Methods

Bacteria were extracted from seawater, sediment, and benthic organisms, mainly from the Terra Nova Bay marine area in East Antarctica. CIBAN also hosts bacterial isolates from the continent.

Study Extent The MNA-CIBAN culture collection is specialized in Antarctic bacteria.
Quality Control Strains are routinely streaked on agar plates every six months to control purity and viability.

Method step description:

  1. All cultures are maintained in duplicate on agar slants at 4 °C. Antarctic strains are also preserved by freezing cell suspensions at – 80 °C in liquid broth to which 20% glycerol is added.
