BCCM Training

    The preservation of biological material is of primary interest for research but also for industrial applications. It is the mission of the BCCM consortium not only to preserve, but also to offer quality controlled, characterised and documented biological material. BCCM also offers its expertise through services and partnership projects.

    The BCCM consortium organises its second training, focusing on preservation of micro-organisms (18-21 September 2018), This course is addressed to all students, scientists, technicians and industrials who aim to develop their potential in micro-organism handling and preservation.
