Collection of characterised Aspergillus Section Nigri

A collection of 156 strains representing OTA producing strains of A. carbonarius and the A. niger aggregate isolated from vineyards of six countries of the Mediterranean Basin (France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece and Israel) was created. All strains have been given an IMI number. The isolates have been cryo-preserved using two methods namely, storage in straws under liquid nitrogen, and freeze-dried in ampoules.From the scientific point of view, the IMI (CABI Bioscience) Culture Collection created with the strains collected during the project in the Mediterranean Basin will be Ĝopenĝ and available for research studies by other scientists.
