Objective

The project will address important issues raised by the current OECD Initiative on Biological Resource Centres (BRCs) requiring culture collections to adapt to support biotechnology for the 21st century. It will allow Europe to exploit its expertise in BRCs and Information Technology, set common policies and maintain high standards of operation. It will allow links to be made between the BRC catalogues and other data sets and ensure that the large amount of specialised information that is presently hidden in BRCs is brought into the open and will utilise a single common web site as its electronic centre. Importantly, it will coordinate response to new initiatives relevant to access to, and use of, microorganism and cell line ex situ living resources. It will improve collection capacity and enable cost-effective introduction of new technologies by improving efficiency through co ordination of common activities.
