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.

No Description available
|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:
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:
- 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.
|Collection Name||MNA CIBAN Antarctica Bacterial Culture Collection|
|Parent Collection Identifier||MNA|
|Specimen preservation methods||Deep frozen, No treatment|
