General deposit
The CGMCC collects microbial strains of applied, biotechnological, educational, taxonomic, and general interest. Microorganisms sent for deposit in the open collection should have been used in work already published or prepared for publication. Strains deposited in this manner will be published in a CGMCC catalog and will be available to the international scientific community in both academic and industrial institutions.
CGMCC accepts archaea, bacteria including actinomycetes, yeasts and filamentous fungi which belong to risk group 1 or 2. No organisms can be accepted without information of the country of origin. Depositors should transfer materials in accordance with a treaty provision of the CBD.
The deposit of strains in the open collection is free of charge.
The procedure for general deposit is as follow.
Download and fill in the Accession Form and send it to our desk (cgmcc@im.ac.cn).
Wait for response. We will contact you whether acceptable or not as soon as possible.
Please send your microorganisms with the accession form together to the CGMCC.
Once preservation and all quality checks are done, the CGMCC accession number will be assigned to the microorganism and the DEPOSITOR will be informed. Please take into account that for some strains this may take a while.
Only for general deposit, the CGMCC will issue the certificate. Please contact us (cgmcc@im.ac.cn) to apply for the certificate.
