BCCM/ULC Cyanobacteria culture collection at the University of Liège (ISO9001 certified)

Última versión Publicado por SCAR - Microbial Antarctic Resource System en Jan 13, 2020 SCAR - Microbial Antarctic Resource System

BCCM/ULC is a small and dedicated public culture collection, currently containing one of the largest collections of documented (sub)polar cyanobacteria worldwide.

The BCCM/ULC collection is hosted by the Centre for Protein Engineering (the Unit) of the University of Liège. The host Unit is very active in research projects concerning the cyanobacterial diversity and biogeography, with a focus on polar biotopes. The approach used is polyphasic, including the isolation of strains and culture-independent methods (DGGE, clone libraries, pyrosequencing based on the ribosomal operon sequences). The participation to field expeditions in the Antarctic and Arctic has enabled to collect samples in many locations. Moreover, taxonomic research is carried out by the host Unit to improve the classification of the cyanobacterial phylum. It is based on a polyphasic approach combining the morphological and molecular characterizations of the strains.

Datos del Proyecto

In 1983 the Council of Ministers decided to bring the microbial resource holdings and the expertise available in different Belgian institutes together in a network of culture collections: with this the consortium of Belgian Coordinated Collections of Micro-organisms (BCCM) saw the light of day. Today, the BCCM consortium has grown to become one of the most important culture collections in the world, both in terms of the size and quality of the collections (bacteria, yeasts, moulds, plasmids, diatoms, DNA libraries) and its expertise. Not only does the consortium keep more than 200,000 quality controlled, characterised and documented units of biological material, but it also offers its expertise through services and partnership projects.

Título Belgian Co-ordinated Collection of Micro-organisms (BCCM)
Identificador BCCM
Fuentes de Financiación The BCCM coordination cell is part of the Research Programmes Department of the Belgian Science Policy office (Belspo). The Research Programmes department funds the BCCM consortium to support research, development and innovation in life sciences and biotechnology. Belspo's integrated quality-environment management system is certified in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard and registered in compliance with European regulation 1221/2009 (EMAS). The activities of the BCCM coordination cell are thus also guided by the principles of quality and environmental friendliness.
Descripción del Área de Estudio global
Descripción del Diseño The BCCM consortium is composed of 7 decentralised culture collections that are coordinated by a central team at the Belgian Science Policy Office. Each collection is part of a binomial with its host laboratory. The close cooperation between these two partners leads to an optimal balance between research and conservation activities. Moreover, the cooperation between the collections leads to the exchange and implementation of best practices for the conservation of microbial genetic resources and the harmonised application of international standards and regulations in microbiology. Thanks to the recurrent funding programme from the Belgian Science Policy Office, and with the support of their respective host institutes, about 70 people study and conserve the biodiversity present in the BCCM collections. As such, they contribute to research, development and innovation activities in biotechnology and life sciences.

Métodos de Muestreo

The host laboratory has one of the largest research collections of documented (sub)polar cyanobacteria worldwide, with more than 100 strains characterized by phenotypic (morphology based on microscopic observations) and genotypic (16S rRNA and ITS sequences) analyses. The morphological identification shows that the strains belong to the orders Synechococcales, Oscillatoriales, Pleurocapsales, Chroococcidiopsidales and Nostocales. The strains are unicyanobacterial, but not axenic. They are available as living cultures, and the majority is also cryo-preserved (-70°C). BCCM/ULC is progressively incorporating the most interesting strains from the research collection of the host Unit into the public collection. In addition, ongoing research and public deposits from other (more temperate) geographical areas enrich progressively the variety of proposed strains. The public collection now includes the type strain of the recently described species Plectolyngbya hodgsonii (Taton et al., 2011, Polar Biology, 34: 181-191).

Área de Estudio The BCCM/ULC cyanobacteria culture collection accepts the deposits (public and safe) of all kinds of cyanobacteria, if they correspond to its cultivation capacities and are not duplicates of already existing strains.
Control de Calidad The services of deposits and public distribution are certified by an ISO9001 certificate, since 2012.

Descripción de la metodología paso a paso:

  1. Upon deposit, the depositors must fill the Accession form that includes the information on the origin and characteristics of the sampling site and of the srain isolated from the sampling site (http://bccm.belspo.be/docs/deposit-forms). These elements are used for the metadata.
