The association of Biology Centre Collections of Organisms (BCCO) is part of the Biology Centre of the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS). One of the BCCO’s goals is to preserve genetic diversity ex situ. Detailed information about the isolates and specimens can be found in the catalogues of the collections.
With regard to the many different organisms present in the BCCO, we offer either living strains, isolated DNA, or fixed specimens depending on the collection. For more information please check the catalogues or contact the curators.
