Strain Deposit Service

Deposit in the Open Collection

The NCYC is always seeking to obtain new strains for deposit. We would be pleased to hear from anyone wanting to deposit strains. We cannot automatically accept all strains but will give careful consideration to any we are offered. We are particularly interested in potential new species, species from unusual environments or those which have industrial applications.
